Ballast water treatment techniques to eliminating invasive aquatic species, reducing corrosion and complying with IMO ballast water guidelines. Ballast Water Management System for ships. Ocean-going ships take on ballast water to maintain stability when sailing without cargoes. This system ensures that ballast water is harmless when it is discharged into the sea at the loading port. Animal and plant plankton, bacteria, and other harmful materials in the ballast water are removed by the combined use of a high-performance filter, chemicals and venture tubes.

This cartoon focuses on the challenges linked to the introduction of invasive species associated to shipping and ballast waters. It is part of a series of animations produced in the H2020 project ResponSEAble. It aims to illustrate how the project’s approach to knowledge helps understanding human-ocean relations as basis to become responsible for our oceans, in particular: (a) the policies and human activities (Drivers) that put Pressures on marine ecosystems; (b) the problems that these pressures cause for the quality (Status) of marine ecosystems, and for the ecology and the fauna and flora and human activities that depends from these ecosystems (Impacts and Wellbeing); and (c) the actions and policies that can be proposed for solving the problems (Responses). Being an illustration of the proposed approach, the cartoon presents the issues in a caricaturist manner. By no means, the cartoon provides the full picture of reality, an element to keep in mind when displaying the cartoon to different audiences.

In this episode I get to grips with 'Hellcat's' water ballast system. The system has six tanks- two forward tanks, two tanks under the side deck next to the shrouds and two under the deck next to the cockpit. In the engine bay a pump can be operated to move water through a network of pipes that draw in water from the sea and distribute it to any one of the tanks. This is a major performance component of the boat helping to give her an incredible max righting moment of 33,000kg/m. (The class max has since been reduced to 29,000 kg/m) As with so much of this boat I was working out the system literally as I was filming this series- I think you can literally see the cogs going round as I work problems out! www.spartanoceanracing.com Facebook www.facebook.com/spartanoceanracing/ Music: 'Bumblebee' YouTube Open Licence Video: Spartan R/T 2018

The Idea of the injection needles didn't work out, they were slower than we expected. So we came up with a simple, new, but solid idea. This ballast-tank has 2 waterpumps. The one pumps water through the hose in the tank (right) the other sucks it out (left). We also made a hole on the top of the tank so that air can flow in the tank when the water flows out. This causes the submarine to submerge (water pumped in) or surface (water pumped out).

According to IMO estimates, ships carry some 3 billion tons to 5 billion tons of ballast water globally each year. The IMO developed and adopted “The International Convention for The Control and Management of Ships Ballast Water Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004” (Ballast Water Management Convention) with the aim of protecting the marine environment from the transfer of harmful aquatic organisms in ballast water carried by ships. The BWM Convention will enter into force on 8 September 2017. Ballast water management for ships shall be made in accordance with the following Standards under this Convention. (1) Ballast water performance standard (Regulation D-2) (2) Ballast water exchange standard (Regulation D-1) Finally, ships shall conduct primary method that Harmful Aquatic Organisms and Pathogens in ballast water are treated with approved Ballast Water Management System (BWMS). #BWMS #IMO #BallastWater Don't Forget to Subscribe Us Like Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarineOnlineYoutube Follow Twitter: https://twitter.com/MarineOnlineYou Follow Google+ https://plus.google.com/107450234425940445683 Website: https://marineonlineyou.blogspot.com/

Introduction. In the old days ships used sand and rocks as ballast, so even in those days of wooden ships, mariners knew the advantages of ship ballasting. Nowadays we have a ballasting system comprising of segregated tanks, supplied with seawater from dedicated ballast pumps. This normally happens as the cargo is being discharged, especially on oil tankers. There are several reasons for ballasting a ship; the main ones being keeping the propeller and rudder in the water maintaining steering and propulsion operations, maintaining the ship’s trim and stability in heavy weather, and minimizing topsides wind drag. However, ballasting and de-ballasting has led to some serious problems, particularly to environmental marine life at the port of discharge. *Aquatic Species Carried in Ships Ballast Tanks As we have seen, ballasting a ship in foreign ports can include taking onboard some exotic, aquatic species which will remain in the ballast tanks as stowaways until the ballast water is discharged in another port. It is here that these aquatic, non-native species are introduced to the local waters worldwide, causing numerous problems as shown below: Great Lakes of Canada and USA These are approached from the St Lawrence Seaway through a series of locks. When I was at sea our ship used to run between UK ports discharging in Toronto and Detroit, but even in these days there were many ships from numerous foreign exotic ports. These undoubtedly introduced Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS), animals and plants such as the zebra mussel which rapidly reproduced, quickly populating the waterways and lakes clogging water pipes, filters, and pumping systems. They were also washed ashore at many recreational sites causing foul odors and sharp-edged shell accumulation; subsequent eradication and clean-up of these species cost in excess of $1 billion. Australian Ports The introduction of North Pacific Sea Star to Australian ports was from ships discharging the larvae along with ballast water loaded in Japan or Korea. The larvae quickly grow to sea-stars of up to 100cm, a danger to local indigenous aquatic life; they poison prey before devouring them. Black and Caspian Seas The introduction of the carnivorous North American Comb Jellyfish also known as the sea walnut was introduced by oil tankers discharging ballast water. Its invasion of these waters had a catastrophic effect on their whole ecosystems, decimating fisheries in the Black and Caspian Seas. Invasive Species in Ballast systems – Eradication Methods 1. The exchange of ballast water in mid-ocean. 2. Purification by UV or Ozone 3. Mechanical control This involves the use of fine mesh screens (50 Micron) and a backwash system located in the ballast suction inlets. It is designed to trap any invasive species before they can enter into the ballast system. 4. Biological control Once the invasive species have been identified, the use of a species which control them in their own habitat can be introduced to manage their extermination in their new environment. 5. De-oxygenation of ballast water entails the injection of nitrogen into the ballast tank water, thus starving it of oxygen. De-oxygenation is deemed to not only to eradicate any invasive species, but also mitigate the corrosion of the internals of the ballast tanks. 6. Use of fresh water as ballast 7. Coating of ballast tank internal surfaces, these can incorporate anti-fouling additions such as silicon PDS (polydimethyelsiloxanes) to reduce the formation and reproduction of invasive species on the tank surfaces. However most of the successful anti-fouling coatings are toxic and would be detrimental to indigenous aquatic species if discharged along with the ballast water.

What is a Bilge Ejector / Bilge Eductor and understanding the working Principle of the same ? How an Ejector Works ? The functionality of water jet bilge ejectors is solely based on fluid dynamics. Sea water from the ships own FiFi or ballast system is introduced under pressure into the motive connection of the ejector. ... Drawn to a curve the velocity and pressure gradient along an ejector would be almost contrary. Eductors and Ejectors are liquid Jet pumps that use water or other liquids under pressure to create a pumping action. In standard eductors the drive pressure liquid discharges through a single nozzle to start the pumping action. Ejectors are self priming and can handle liquid and solid mixtures. There are no moving parts to break down or wear out. Eductors are available with flanged or threaded connections, for portable use or for permanent installation. Ejectors are used to pump liquids from chain lockers, bilges, cargo holds, or any space that has to be pumped dry. Water ejectors are vacuum pumps, driven by a high pressure water (or similar medium) or steam. They use kinetic energy of the driving medium to suck in gases, vapors or other liquids and then discharge the resultant mixture against a counter pressure. Turbine Works manufactures water ejectors for industrial and marine purposes. Ejectors are simple in design and reliable in operation since they don't have movable parts like stadanrd pumps. Major parts of an ejector are a inlet casing, nozzle, mixing chamber and diffuser. Since there are no moving parts, no lubrication is necessary and maintenance is minimal. Ejectors are self-priming and easily activated by simply turning on the flow of the driving water. Water ejectors depending on application can be manufactured out of various materials ranging from bronze, steel, stainless steel with nozzels usualy being made out of hi grade stainless steel or monel. ...............................................................

When flipped, most of the buoyancy for the platform is provided by water at depths below the influence of surface waves, hence FLIP is a stable platform mostly immune to wave action, like a spar buoy. At the end of a mission, compressed air is pumped into the ballast tanks in the flooded section and the vessel returns to its horizontal position so it can be towed to a new location.The ship is frequently mistaken for a capsized ocean transport ship FLIP is designed to study wave height, acoustic signals, water temperature and density, and for the collection of meteorological data. Because of the potential interference with the acoustic instruments, FLIP has no engines or other means of propulsion. It must be towed to open water, where it drifts freely or is anchored. In tow, FLIP can reach speeds of 7--10 knots. FLIP weighs 700 long tons (711 tonnes) and carries a crew of five, plus up to eleven scientists. It is capable of operating independently during month-long missions without resupply,being able to operate worldwide but the normal area is the west coast of the United States. The vessel operates out of a home base at the Scripps Nimitz Marine Facility in San Diego, California.
