about US$2.3 million by a German vehicle components manufacturer in Shenzhen,

BWTS (Ballast Water Treatment System) update:
PACT has passed the BWTS land base test in China in September and has to pass
a 6 month sea board test in order to get the necessary certifications before
launching the system. PACT is now preparing two (300 cubic meters per hour)

Maritime Organization ("IMO") to prevent the biological unbalance caused by
the estimated 12 billion tons of ballast water transported across the seas by

market potential for retrofits and new installations of BWTS in these old and
new ocean-going ships is enormous.
