Every SAB product combines the knowledge of different industrial fields. The medium-sized family business now presents new products with GL and DNV-type approval and enlarges herewith its cable range for ship and offshore applications.

Ballast water, necessary to counterbalance ships is taken on board all over the oceans. For a safe and economic cruise every year billions of tons of ballast water are spread in the sea.

Together with this ballast water, unwanted passengers such as animals, for example fishes, crabs, bacteria and microbes, are transported and released at the final destination.

In their new environment, in which they often do not have natural enemies they affect or even infect other animals so that considerable ecological and economical harm can be caused that finally means a danger for mankind.

The International Marine Organisation (IMO) works on an agreement that shall limit or avoid such dangers, comprising an international agreement about the control and the management of the ballast water of ships and sediments.

In 2016 at the latest, the ballast water onboard each ship has to be cleaned and sterilised by special treatment systems so that it reaches the prescribed standard according to the agreement.
