1. SCOPE

This plan is written in accordance with the requirements of Regulation B-1 of the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004 (the Convention) and the associated Guidelines.

LE

The purpose of this plan is to meet the requirements for the control and management of ship’s ballast water and sediments in accordance with the Guidelines for Ballast Water Management and the Development of Ballast Water Management Plans, MEPC Res.127(53) (the Guidelines). It provides standard operational guidance for the planning and management of the ship’s ballast water and sediments and describes safe procedures to be followed. This plan has been approved by the vessel’s classification society and no alteration or revision shall be made to any part of it without the prior approval of the classification society. Changes to non mandatory information in Appendices D & E will not be required to be approved.

P

It is the responsibility of the Owners/Operators or the Master to regularly review this plan and ensure that the information contained herein is accurate and updated.

M

Only those options of handling ballast which are suitable and known to be safe for use on this ship are shown in the plan. The Master understands that the steps in the ballast exchange plan contained herein should only be carried out within the ship’s defined operational limits and failure to observe this restriction may result in damage to the ship’s structure.

A

Procedures are to be always checked by the Master for conformity with the ship’s specific assessment criteria. The overall responsibility for the execution of the procedures described in this plan lies with the ship’s Master.

S

Crew training and familiarisation with the operational procedures and related risks will be undertaken by the ship’s Master and the appointed Ballast Water Management Officer. The plan is part of the ship’s operational documents and is to be kept available for inspection upon request by Port State Control or quarantine officers. The plan is written in English, which is the working language of the crew.

3. PURPOSE

3.1

BACKGROUND

LE

Ballast water is essential to control trim, list, draught, stability or stresses of the ship. However, ballast water may contain aquatic organisms or pathogens which, if introduced into the sea including estuaries or into fresh water courses, may create hazards to the environment, human health, property or resources, impair biological diversity or interfere with other legitimate uses of such areas. It is estimated that the world fleet transfers around ten billion tonnes of ballast water each year and that about 7,000 different species are being transported daily in ships’ ballast tanks around the world. Studies carried out in several countries indicated that many species of bacteria, plants, and animals can survive in a viable form in the ballast water and sediment carried in ships even after voyages of several months' duration.

REQUIREMENTS

A

3.2

M

P

Subsequent discharge of ballast water or sediment into the waters of port States may result in the establishment of harmful aquatic organisms and pathogens which may pose threats to indigenous human, animal and plant life and the marine environment. When all factors are favourable, an introduced species by survive to establish a reproductive population in the host environment; it may even become invasive, out-competing native species and multiplying into pest proportions. Although other media have been identified as being responsible for transferring organisms between geographically separated water bodies, ballast water discharge from ships appears to have been among the most prominent.

S

Some states have established controls on the discharge of ships’ ballast water that will minimise the potential for colonisation of their coasts, rivers and estuaries by non-native species. Accordingly, the countries most concerned have promulgated advice to ships for ballast management, together with a request for their co-operation in applying the relevant techniques. Standard procedures have been developed that will be accepted by quarantine authorities as achieving the level of acceptability desired by the port state. 3.3

IMO INVOLVEMENT

As a result IMO has developed guidelines for the development and implementation of the ballast water management on board ships aiming to assist governments, appropriate authorities, ships masters, operators, owners and port authorities, as well as other interested parties, in preventing, minimising and ultimately eliminating the risk of introducing harmful aquatic organisms and pathogens from ships’ ballast water and associated sediments while protecting ships’ safety.

S

A

Once it has been established that ballast water exchange at sea is necessary to meet the quarantine requirements of a port state, preparation for it should be treated with the same seriousness as preparation of a cargo plan. All concerned with the operation and safe passage of the ship can thereby be assured that they are both protecting the marine environment and ensuring the safety of the ship and crew.

REPORTING TO PORT STATES

P

3.6

LE

To be able to demonstrate at the arrival port that the correct measures have been completed, it will be necessary to maintain a full and accurate ballast log. A suitable outline for such a log is provided in Section 13. Even if a ship is not trading in an area where ballast water information is required, it may later prove worthwhile to have a history of what water has been carried.

S

A

M

Several countries have become aware of the potential for the transfer into their coastal areas of what are found to be harmful aquatic organisms through discharge of ships’ ballast water. Governments have recognised that, before imposing mandatory controls on ships, it is necessary to know the scale of what has, until very recently, been an unrecorded procedure.

7. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE EXCHANGE OF BALLAST WATER AT SEA

7.1.

GENERAL

The exchange of ballast water in the open sea has to be distinguished from ballast operations carried out in ports or in sheltered waters. Ballast water exchange at sea is a comparatively new development with the potential to be more hazardous and a sense of familiarity with the mechanics of ballasting should not be allowed to induce complacency in this new procedure.

LE

The ballast exchange procedures described in Appendix B indicate sequences for the exchange of ballast water using the method(s) applicable to this ship. A decision should be made at the completion of each sequence, taking into account factors such as the ship’s position, weather forecast, machinery performance, stability, strength, degree of crew fatigue, before proceeding to the next sequence. If any factors are considered unfavourable, a decision should be made if exchange operations should be suspended until conditions become more favourable or if they should be halted.

M

P

Contingency procedures should be established for situations which may affect ballast water exchange at sea including deteriorating weather conditions, pump failure and loss of power, time to complete the ballast water exchange for each tank or an appropriate sequence thereof, The ballast exchange operation should be continuously monitored. Monitoring should include pumps, levels in tanks, line and pump pressures, ship’s stability and hull stresses. POTENTIAL HAZARDS CONNECTED TO BALLAST WATER EXCHANGE AT SEA

9. DESCRIPTION OF THE METHOD(S) USED ONBOARD FOR BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT

9.1.

GENERAL

The ballast water management system in use onboard this vessel comprises the exchange of ballast water in open water. This section gives ship-specific guidance on ballast water exchanging procedures to be followed at sea.

LE

A Ballast Exchange Plan (BEP) is a sequence of steps to be followed for the safe exchange of the ship’s ballast water at sea. It is at the discretion of the ship’s Master to follow one of the prepared BEPs or to prepare a new BEP for the ship’s specific condition, taking into account the relevant assessment criteria. If in doubt, the Master should seek assistance from the shore management.

PROPOSED BALLAST WATER EXCHANGE PLANS

S

A

M

9.2.

P

Other BEPs may be generated using the vessel’s approved onboard loading software. Where a new BEP is to be introduced in the ship’s ballast water management plan, the shore management is to be advised, who in turn need to submit the new BEP to Class for review and approval, as necessary.
