Wärtsilä's AQUARIUS UV Ballast Water Management System certified for hazardous onboard areas

Wärtsilä, the marine industry's leading provider of innovative products, solutions and services, has announced that its Wärtsilä AQUARIUS UV Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) has successfully completed verification testing for explosion proof (EX) requirements.

The verification was handled through DEKRA, a Notified Body in Germany and a leading global provider of auditing and certification services, specialising in the fields of safety, environment and health. It now means that the AQUARIUS UV BWMS range is EX certified for Zone 1 hazardous area operation in marine and offshore installations.

It is an International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirement that the BWMS for ships having hazardous areas onboard must be EX proof certified. Wärtsilä has taken a systems approach to the EX validation process and the complete AQUARIUS UV BWMS module, not only electrical components, making it compliant with the EX and IMO regulations. This approach improves accessibility, since the modular design allows some system components to be located outside the hazardous area, thereby increasing the availability and maintainability of the whole system.
