Ballast water, necessary to counterbalance ships, is taken on board all over the ocean. For a safe and economic cruise every year, billions of tons of ballast water is spread in the sea. Together with this ballast water, unwanted passengers like fish, crabs, bacteria and microbes are transported and released at the final destination. In their new environment, in which they often do not have natural enemies, they affect or even infect other animals resulting in considerable ecological and economical harm and possible danger for mankind.
The IMO (International Marine Organisation) works on an agreement that will limit or avoid such dangers – international agreement about the control and the management of the ballast water of ships and sediments. In 2016, the ballast water on board of each ship has to be cleaned and sterilised by special treatment systems so that it reaches the prescribed standard according to the agreement. For the use on trade and passenger ships, SAB Bröckskes offers special cables with type approval for the wiring of these systems. On the market very often adequate solutions for special applications and requirements are missing making this is the strength of SAB Bröckskes as cable manufacturer. With close cooperation from our customers, developments are pushed forward that refer to the corresponding international standards. Our products are then adjusted with regard to their materials and construction so that the customer´s requirements are fulfilled, thus the cables offer the best functionality in each application. SAB Bröckskes also takes care of the tests and approvals at the corresponding admission offices of DNV, GL, LR and ABS.
For the wiring of technical equipment on ships the cable manufacturer offers a range of cable products with type approvals.
