Mitsui O.S.K. Lines to Install Ballast Water Treatment System on VLCC
 

Tokyo, Jan 10, 2013 (JCN) - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced plans to install a ballast water treatment system on a very large crude oil carrier (VLCC) currently in service. This will be the first such onboard system installed by any Japanese shipowner on an existing VLCC.

The company chose the JFE Ballast Ace developed by JFE Engineering Corporation. The installation will take place while the vessel is docked from March through April.

Ballast water discharged while loading/discharging cargo carries marine organisms around the world and can have a negative impact on marine ecosystems and biodiversity.

This has become a subject of global concern since the late 1980s. Accordingly, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted the Ballast Water Management Convention in February 2004, and its ratification is under way.
