HOW DOES CTG/GSA’S BALLAST WATER SAMPLING DEVICE WORK?
To monitor, if ballast water treatment systems are working effectively, our partner Chelsea Technologies Group was awarded a grant to develop a method for measuring very low concentrations of phytoplankton cells , to monitor if ballast water treatment systems are working effectively. As a result, the FastBallast Compliance Monitoring Systems are now capable of determining the phytoplankton cell density of ballast water at the IMO D2 & USCG Discharge Standards (10 to 50 µm range) with a higher degree of confidence than laboratory analysis . FastBallast is available in 2 separate solutions; a Discrete Sample Compliance Monitor and as an Integrated Compliance Monitor. FastBallast’s cutting edge design enables a rapid and detailed analysis that it is the only technology capable of operating in a flow-through mode, while providing a high degree of accuracy with a representative report on discharge compliance.

GSA will initially carry out Ballast Water Analysis on board by our trained technicians in conformity to IMO D-2 Standards, and as per the additional guidelines of Saudi Arabia Sea Port. GSA technician will be ready to board the vessel, with the appropriate and Saudi Port recognized testing equipment. The results of this indicative analysis will be handed over, one copy to the vessel, and two copies to agent, one of which will need to be submitted to the concerned authorities (Saudi Port) either by the owners or their appointed local agents. We help you in issuance of three report copies; ship master, Agent, and service provider.
Global Strategic Alliance (GSA) Saudi Arabia is affiliated with all major shipping agencies in Saudi Arabia to serve ships that call Saudi Arabian ports. Also, device used by GSA technicians has been proven to be the fastest and most accurate with an average time spent onboard by GSA technician to be less than 30 minutes and accuracy that has become the benchmark adopted by Saudi Aramco.
