Ballast Water

Ballast water - the problematic necessity!

The introduction of invasive marine species to new environments is a major threat to the world’s oceans.

Ballast water is a necessary but problematic aspect of shipping, as the water itself may contain harmful aquatic organisms and pathogens that can be transported to new environments.

Therefore, to protect the environment and the diversity of marine species, ballast water management is an important part of modern shipping. Water pumps are an essential component of such systems, and with our extensive pump range, we can contribute to your successful compliance with regulations and conventions regarding ballast water treatment.

Ballast pumps, ejectors and back-flush pumps, are all part of the IRON product portfolio.
