This thesis has been prepared in order to become an approved Ballast Water Management Plan for a specific double hull oil tanker according to relevant regulations of IMO. First of all, we analyzed the essential role that ballast water plays to ship’s safety, to human health, to environment and to property of resources. By including various ship’s plans, such as General Arrangement, Capacity Plan and Location of Sampling Points, as well as useful tables with ballast water pump capacities, time tables for the methods that we describe, we intend to assist anyone to understand and follow all the steps of the procedure properly. In our case study, the ballast water system is based on ballast exchange by using centrifugal permanent ballast water pumps. Three “pump through” methods can be used: sequential, flow through and dilution with the second one to be the most suitable for the specific tanker. Type of sampling point is manhole and location of sampling points is shown in relevant plan.
