Bactest Limited Key Developments

Hyde Marine Partners with Bactest, Ltd for Hyde Guardian Gold Ballast Water Treatment System

Hyde Marine announced a new, non-exclusive, partnership with Bactest, Ltd, allowing Hyde Marine to sell rapid compliance tools with their Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS). This partnership helps ensure ship owners using the chemical-free Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® BWTS are adhering to ballast water treatment standards and are able to demonstrate this compliance to Port State Control officers. Bactest Ltd. has developed an integrated ballast water testing system “Speedy Breedy® SeaSure™” that tests ballast water for microbial compliance to the D2 standard and inputs data from other ballast water testing equipment into a secure Ballast Water Log suitable for audit trail and transmission to interested parties such as port state authorities. Bactest has designed a secure output to allow this Ballast Water Log to be downloaded onto the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® system log to store the data and provide a one-stop log for regulators to assess treatment system performance. Speedy Breedy® SeaSure™ is the only instrument on the market that can be used on ships or in port to test for compliance with the IMO standard for the 3 bacteria set out in the standard: Cholera, E.Coli and Enterococci. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold® BWTS uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships' ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port.
