JAPAN's ClassNK, the second largest ship classification society worldwide, is urging the industry to crack on with installing ballast water treatment systems (BWTSs) now to avoid any failure to meet the global deadlines set for this mandatory equipment.

According to ClassNK's data on its classed fleet, 2,486 ships are planned to undergo BWTS installations in 2022, coinciding with the deadline for the Ballast Water Management Convention.



'As difficulties are expected in the installation of BWMS if everyone around the world waits until 2022, ClassNK recommends installing well in advance,' the Tokyo-headquartered organisation said in a release, reported Singapore's Splash 247.



Ship repair facilities have come under enormous strain in recent months owing to the huge volume of scrubber installations, as well as routine maintenance bookings and some BWTS fittings, which have triggered delays at many shipyards.
