About us

More and more port states are signing up to the IMO’s BMW Treaty. The result is that ship owners and operators are increasingly compelled to comply with the convention’s strict terms for ballast water and sediment management.

As the demand for approved systems ballast water management systems grows, manufacturers are becoming increasingly busier than ever with the challenges of installing equipment on both new and existing vessels.




This is where MR Ballast’s extensive worldwide organisation can offer a competitive advantage to both manufacturers and end-users.

Our sister company, MR Elevator is a market leader worldwide in marine elevator servicing. MR Ballast has an identical scope of work as MR Elevator: worldwide, fast and efficient service by specialized, competent technicians.

From marine elevators to ballast water treatment systems

In 2015, when the BWM treaty was close to coming into effect, our board of directors decided to investigate the need for the worldwide servicing of Ballast Water Treatment Systems.

It turns out there is a growing requirement for professional servicing of these critical systems, no matter which techniques are being used.

Having technicians in more local ports, combined with management in three time zones, ultimately results in more cost efficient service.

The preferred service supplier

In fact, such a well-positioned presence of technicians is the key to our success (we exclusively service the complete AP Moller-Maersk fleet for instance).

 We have developed our unique network of marine technicians to become competent in servicing BWT-systems as well.

MR Ballast has offices in Shanghai, Singapore, headquarters in Rotterdam, and qualified ballast water treatment system technicians in 130 ports around the world.
