Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the maritime industry, is proud to announce the 3rd Ballast Water Management Summit, scheduled at the Long Beach Marriott on February 09-11, 2016.
The IMO Ballast Water Management Convention will soon be ratified with Indonesia becoming the latest flag state to sign the act pushing support closer to the 35% of tonnage needed to bring the act into effect. With the enforcement of the BWM Convention, all ships will need to be retrofitted with a ballast water management system. This is the new shipping reality for shippers operating in US Coastal waters.
Prepare for the impending changes at Infocast’s 3rd Annual Ballast Water Management Summit 2016. The summit will take place in Long Beach and host regulators, ship owners & operators, shipbuilders, water treatment specialists, marine equipment suppliers, port authorities and more as they share information and strategize solutions for BWM system compliance.
The annual event will kick off with the Pre-Summit Briefing – Ballast Water Treatment Technology which will focus on an overview of current technologies, type approval, testing and retrofits.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and hear from major Ship Owners, Operators, Shipping associations on their experiences with retrofitting, installing, operating, and maintaining BWM systems.
