Cables for marine use

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 also unwanted passengers like for example animals as 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 IMO (International Marine Organisation) works on an agreement that shall limit or avoid such dangers – international agreement about the control and the management of the ballast water of ships and sediments. In 2016 at the latest the ballast water on board of each ship has to be cleaned and sterilised by special treatment systems so that it reaches the prescribed standard acc. to the agreement.
