Posted by Michelle Howard

The U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Center issued the seventh U.S. Coast Guard Ballast Water Management System Type Approval Certificate to Techcross, Inc., after a detailed review of the manufacturer's type approval application determined the system met the requirements of 46 CFR 162.060.

The treatment principle of the Techcross Electro-Cleen BWMS consists of electrolysis during uptake and neutralization at discharge. This approval covers models with maximum treatment rated capacities between 150 m3/h and 12,000 m3/h.

A complete list of ballast water treatment systems that have been approved or have type approval applications currently under review can be found on the Marine Safety Center webpage. Redacted copies of all completed type approval certificates are also available.
