Development and Testing of Early Shipboard Ballast Water Treatment Systems
Working with the University of Maryland’s Center for Environmental Sciences, Sigma developed a new, and now patented centrifugal separator and ultraviolet disinfection system. The separator removes invasive aquatic species from ships’ ballast water, therefore preventing the introduction of destructive organisms into US waters. The system was developed and manufactured in NJ and installed aboard the M/V CAPE MAY at South Locust Point Marine Terminal in Baltimore, MD.
