Support that runs both deep and wide

In choosing Alfa Laval PureBallast 3, you choose more than the leading ballast water treatment technology. You choose a supplier with total solutions, including the skills, resources and well-developed service offering to support your needs – today and tomorrow.

PureBallast 3 Computer-Based Training

PureBallast 3 Computer-Based Training (CBT) is a complement to face-to-face instruction that lets crews learn about PureBallast 3 – anytime, anywhere.

Introduction and skills development

IMO and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) make clear that crews must understand ballast water management practices and the specifics of the ballast water treatment system on board. PureBallast 3 CBT is an online/offline training tool that provides a solid introduction and helps to keep crew skills updated.

Available 24/7, PureBallast 3 CBT serves as a complement to face-to-face instruction. By helping crews get to know the basics of PureBallast 3, it saves hours of training in the office and shortens the time for handover on board.

Study, simulation and assessment

PureBallast 3 CBT comprises three training components that strengthen and verify crew skills:

    • Self-study session
      This session explains the reasons for ballast water management and introduces the PureBallast 3 process, components and control system.
    • 3D simulator
      The 3D computer simulation is a practical way to become familiar with PureBallast 3 and its operations as a whole, so that crews know what to expect on board.
    • Self-assessment
      A battery of randomized questions tests what crew members have learned and documents their knowledge in a printed training report.

By helping to develop and maintain crew competence, PureBallast 3 CBT keeps you confident in adhering to IMO and USCG legislation.

Securing compliance

As the deadlines for choosing a ballast water treatment system draw closer, more ship owners are realizing the long-term implications of this one-time investment. Beyond the choice of technology, supplier service capabilities are coming into focus.

Before ballast water regulations entered into force, the discussion on the market centred largely on the differences between treatment methods. Today, however, a growing share of it focuses on the differences between suppliers. Given that ballast water treatment systems should comply throughout the vessel lifetime, ship owners are concerned about supplier stability and technical support down the road, especially when it comes to accessing parts.

Retrofitting PureBallast 3

Alfa Laval is well prepared for the technical and logistical challenges of retrofitting a vessel for ballast water treatment.

Tailored retrofit solutions

On most vessels there is no existing space or consideration for ballast water treatment. The compactness and flexibility of PureBallast 3 Compact Flex will simplify a retrofit, but Alfa Laval’s hands-on knowledge and proven working procedures are even more important.

Alfa Laval has worked with retrofit installations for a decade. Our capabilities, accumulated knowledge and flexible project management make us the most qualified supplier for your retrofit needs. We customize each project to meet your requirements, even offering budgeting assistance and financing options.

Cooperation and flexibility

Retrofits involve partnerships, often at a global level. We can work with your engineering department and chosen yard, or we can secure competencies from our own network for engineering support, 3D laser scanning, class approval and more.

Likewise, we can meet your existing docking schedule or arrange for installation during your voyage. As a global organization with strong logistics, we can even move with your project if your trading routes change prior to docking. Our presence and capabilities worldwide ensure a smooth and successful project, even when major changes occur.
