Ballast Technologies provide fixed ballast installations.  We often used fixed ballast to correct stability problems with vessels.  Permanent ballast should be easy to install with minimum labor.  Of course, it must have significant weight.  Ideally, we also prefer to customize the density of the ballast and ensure we completely fill a compartment.  The following information comes from the company website.


What is Perma Ballast

Perma Ballast® is high density fixed ballast used throughout the world for Ships, Boats, Floating and Gravity Based Production Platforms, Bridges and Counterweights



Perma Ballast® is lead-free, non-toxic, non-corrosive, chemically inert, and environmentally safe, often incorporating iron ore such as magnetite or QCM.

Perma Ballast® will not cause gases or vapors to be generated, even after many years of service.

Perma Ballast® is thoroughly tested in BTI’s laboratories to ensure proper density, uniformity and stability. BTI also performs continuous onsite quality controlduring installation.

Perma Ballast® is avalable in a wide range of installed densities, from 130 lbs/ft3 – 325 lbs/ft3 (2.1 – 5.2 metric tons/m3).

Perma Ballast® is removable and reusable.

Perma Ballast® is recognized and accepted by certifying and regulatory agencies around the world, including ABS, Bureau Veritas, U.S. DOTU.S. Coast GuardLloyd’s RegisterGermanischer Lloyd, and Det Norske Veritas.



Perma Ballast® specialists make a site visit to inspect the vessel and installation location and then draft customized operating and safety plan.

Perma Ballast® is installed  by BTI’s experienced personnel using state-of-the-art equipment for safe, rapid and efficient mobilization, installation and demobilization. To minimize inconvenience to our customers, BTI pumps from dockside and offers the option of continuous installation, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Perma Ballast® is engineered to ensure even distribution throughout all available tank space.

Perma Ballast® consolidates as it is installed. The result is non-shifting fixed ballast that remains removable and reusable.
