Holland Marine Service Amsterdam's MSD-III water treatment system designed to meet IMO Resolution 159(55)

By | Other articles by this author

The MSD-III is based on an activated, fixed-film sludge design, disinfectant and post-filtration to meet the discharge parameters as set by the IMO. The MSD-111 employs microorganisms present in waste water to absorb organic pollution.

It degrades organic material in water, rather than separating it from water, a technique traditional systems employ. The MSD-III is fitted with a bio filter, which is fully submerged in liquid and active bacteria and sludge particles will easily attach and grow. Conventional systems have the bacteria growing freely in the treated liquid, attaching to circulating sludge particles in the liquid.
