Our well-rehearsed team of engineers and scientists offers a comprehensive service in the water sectors ballast, bilge, drinking and wastewater. Consulting services, the implementation of tests and support for research projects are core elements of our range of services.

We advise you comprehensively on all questions and aspects of water treatment and support you in your required approval processes:

  • Studies and analysis on water treatment on land and on ships
  •  Technical reports on changes, scaling
  • Readiness evaluation
  • Advice on testing methods (e.g., MPN, FDA / CMFDA)
  • Evaluation of test plans, dossiers and applications
  • Lectures and panel discussions


  • Scaling of plants and components with CFD simulation and biodosimetric comparison tests
  • Guidance and service for Type Approvals G8, G9 (IMO, US Coast Guard)
  • Creating dossiers and applications
  • Selection of test institute and supervision of admission tests
  • Independent technology consulting



We execute various approval tests and prototype tests and are able to offer you a wide range of test procedures in cooperation with our partners:
