BIO-UV, the ultraviolets water treatment specialist, designed the complete ballast water treatment system BIO-SEA, which combines mechanical filtration and UV disinfection, without any chemical treatment whatsoever. BIO-UV designs and manufactures, with high marine quality components, this reliable and innovative UV ballast water treatment solution in accordance with the G8 IMO Guidelines and the USCG regulations.  BIO-SEA by BIO-UV is the first only system developed and manufactured in France for treatment of ballast water. The BIO-SEA range available in skid, semi-modular and modular versions can be integrated to newbuilding and retrofit vessels.

The system first cleans ballast water using a screen filter, in order to reduce the amount of total suspended particles present in the sea water.
Then UV stage of the treatment takes place in UV reactor without any addition of chemicals nor creation of active substance. It inactivates, thanks to a high UV dose, the microorganisms present in the water (bacteria, phytoplankton, zooplankton).

Having obtained Type Approval (International Disinfection certification awarded by Bureau Veritas under the control of the French government) BIO-SEA is now marketed throughout the world, thanks to its sales and service partners.
