Wärtsilä AQUARIUS® UV Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) provides robust technology for the treatment of ballast water using a simple two stage process involving filtration and ultra-violet (UV) irradiation, across the full range of ship operating and environmental conditions.

The system uses no active substances, is easy to integrate and maintain, and is type approved according to the IMO Convention and has an Alternative Management System (AMS) acceptance certificate from the USCG. It has also been verified for explosion proof (EX) requirements and can therefore be used on-board hazardous areas.
