About us

Ship owners and operators are required to comply with IMO’s BMW Conventions strict terms for ballast water and sediment management. As the demand for approved systems ballast water management systems grows, ship owners and operators face the challenge 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.

MR Ballast services Ballast Water Treatment Systems worldwide in 134 ports. It is a certified service partner of a number of manufacturers and brands. We prioritise operational efficiency, environmentally-friendly practices, and 24/7 support – 365 days of the year.

Technician training

Classroom and hands-on training was obtained from manufacturers, including De NoraWe also visited maker factories of filters, rectifiers and of electrochlorination skids. These makers offer their own in-house classroom and hands-on training, which was exceptionally valuable to our service technicians.

As a company we have our own training centre named MR Academy. All obtained knowledge and expertise we formalized into ISO 9001 certified training modules. 

The preferred service supplier

MR Ballast does not limit its qualified technicians to the servicing of only one type of system; any type of BWTS is serviced, maintained and upgraded. Sample testing and troubleshooting can be done from any of our ports of presence.

MR Ballast assures clients that they will comply with the latest regulations after our technicians have serviced or upgraded their ballast water treatment systems.

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

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