Japanese government approves NYK Group BWMS

Nippon Yuka Kogyo has received approval from the Japanese government for its new ballast water management system (BWMS).

The NYK Group company has chosen the SKY-System for its BWMS, which works using Peraclean Ocean, a chemical treatment that sterilises organisms and bacteria in ballast.

According to NYK, the system is energy efficient, easy to run and maintain, and can be installed on vessels without dry docking.
