FEDNAV Ballast Water Initiative: OceanSaver System on the Federal Welland

MetaFil s OceanSaver Ballast Water Treatment system will be monitored and tested by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).  The OceanSaver system will be installed on board Federal Welland in September 2  5, and testing to determine its effectiveness in complying with International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards will be carried out by DNV during the balance of 2  5 and 2  6.  This system, which includes three treatment processes, (filtration, nitrogen super saturation, and hydro-dynamic cavitation) holds out real promise for the effective treatment of ballast water to the standards set by the IMO convention.
