Ballast Management Experts

Choice, and key partner Netsco, are experts in the application and installation of all types of ballast water treatment systems on all types of vessels. Since 2001, we have been working with owners to develop systems; testing facilities for validation of systems; enforcement agencies and Class to obtain certification; and shipyards for the retrofit of existing vessels. We provide advice and guidance for how to meet IMO and USCG rules.
