Challenges on the BWTS retrofit market
EUMT published a market analyze in June 2021 that predicts a 900% increase in the global BWTS retrofit activity. This will be the result while 35.000 vessels worldwide are now in a hurry to retrofit a ballast water system before expiry of the vessels IOPP certificate, and latest before September 8.th. 2024.
In a global perspective we saw up to 2021 some 100-125 BWTS retrofits being completed every month. Looking forward from today and until deadline September 8.th 2024, then these numbers will explode and call for 1000 retrofits to be completed every month! This will be a challenge for the entire industry – for ship owners, suppliers, classification societies, naval architects, and shipyards. The risk for bottlenecks in both equipment and retrofit capacity will be a clear and present risk for the vessel’s operation, when the excisting IOPP certificate expires.
