France-based UV water treatment specialist, BIO-UV Group has received type approval certification from the United States Coast Guard (USCG) for its new BIO-SEA M-Series ballast water treatment system, following the successful completion of tests under DNV supervision


Unveiled in June 2021, the system has been specifically designed to optimize the footprint and installation costs of a medium flow rate ballast water treatment system.

“The new BIO-SEA M-Series is based on multi-lamp reactors, equipped with two-to-seven lamps in a single chamber, allowing a more compact design for the same capacity of treatment. A maximum of two reactors are installed in parallel,” said Charlène Ceresola, BWT Project Manager, BIO-SEA by BIO-UV Group.

Available as a modular or skid system, the BIO-SEA M-series is available with a short lead time. As of January 2022, the BIO-UV Group had an order book of over 100 BIO-SEA units, almost twice as much as the corresponding period last year.
