New Approval for KBAL BWTS
DNV-GL granted Type Approval for KBAL3000. Type Approval is based on full scale biological testing and not based on
up-scaling of a smaller system like other systems. The 3000 m3/h tests thus represent maybe the highest flow rate
ever biologically tested.
Bernt Olav Bauer-Nilsen, Project Manager, Knutsen Technology said "full scale biological testing provides the required
confidence that even such a large system works in accordance with the stringent requirements".
KBAL BWTS has also received USCG AMS and selected DNV-GL for its USCG Type Approval process.
KBAL BWTS is probably the most efficient and user-friendly BWTS available on the market. Due to the highly effective
and compact pressure vacuum reactor, the system does not use any filters nor chemicals, hence a minimal foot print
is required. Working principles ensure operation with no trade limitations or variations related to salinity, temperature,
quality of sea water. No holding time restrictions.
Knutsen's KBAL apart a simple and safe solution for the vessel, the crew and the environment.
Ease to operate - Ease to maintain - Ease to retrofit.
Treatment during voyage (TDV) option is a very competitive process, enabling vessels to ballast as per normal with no
effect on flow or power, while using smaller systems with lower capacity.
