PYA CREW WORKSHOP: Ballast Water Management - how is your yacht affected?
Sat 8 April 2017, 11:00 – 12:00 CEST
PYA Crew Workshop Day, 8th April 2017
How do the new IMO ballast water discharge regulations affect you?
Does your yacht have to be compliant with the new IMO regulations for ballast water discharge which come into force in September 2017?
Cathelco, the specialists in BWT systems for yachts, invite you to a presentation delivered by technical director Robert Field, who will look more closely at the implications. He will be examining the scope of the new IMO and existing USCG legislation, the importance of having a Ballast Water Management Plan and maintaining a Ballast Water Record Book.
Delegates will also gain insight into the various BWT technologies that are available together with their advantages and limitations. Looking at the installation of a BWT system there will be practical advice on power requirements, the suitability of existing pumps and the best solutions to installing equipment within the space limitations of a yacht engine room.
This event is part of a whole day of workshops for crew taking place on 8th April in Antibes. For details of the other sessions available, please click here.
