A Test of the Efficacy of a Ballast Water Treatment System Aboard the Vessel Coral Princess
Abstract:Tests of the efficacy of a combination filtration/ultraviolet (UV) ballast water treatment (BWT) system were conducted aboard the MV Coral Princess during normal operations from Victoria, British Columbia, through the Panama Canal, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Trials were designed to assist the maritime industry in the deployment of effective BWT systems and to inform regulatory agencies on the feasibility of testing procedures and end-point selection for compliance standards. Results showed treatment efficacy at least equivalent to ballast water exchange, although adjustment of current published standards was indicated.
