Press Release

Since the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention entered into force on September 8, 2017, newbuild vessels have to meet the D2 standard of the Ballast Water Management Convention. In this situation, the Inland Coastal Tanker Elena H. will make her maiden voyage from the Netherlands to Argentina on her own keel. Following her arrival, she will remain permanently in local waters.


Instead of installing a ballast water management system (BWMS) on board the vessel for this single trip, Damen's InvaSave supplied clean D2-standard ballast water for ballasting of the vessel in the Netherlands. The InvaSave is the result of a Damen project aiming at both treatment and supply of IMO certified D2 water from and to vessels.

As part of a cooperation between Damen Green Solutions and Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC), this ballast water reception/bunkering service is available to fill/empty the ballast tanks of (newbuild) vessels in an IMO certified manner. Damen Green Solutions thus offers newbuild or repair yards worldwide the possibility to comply with the BWM Convention without having to install a BWM System on board a vessel.

"Our goal is to build up a reliable worldwide ballast water service network," says Philip Rabe from Damen Green Solutions. "The Ballast Water Management Convention is being recognized and accepted across much of the world and ship owners and yards alike see the many possibilities the InvaSave offers them. The InvaSave proves itself as a versatile tool to treat ballast water of vessels without the need to install a BWMS."

Showing its commitment to build up a worldwide ballast water reception/bunkering service, Damen Green Solutions is in talks with several yards and harbor service providers around the world to offer the InvaSave service.
