Evac can now supply the entire waste handling system for vessels and rigs, to accord with MARPOL Annex V regulations.
The company say they can supply the entire waste handling system for vessels and rigs, covering both dry and wet waste, from food waste handling to onboard sanitary and wastewater treatment.
From January 1st 2013, new requirements relating to the management waste of ships and rigs entered into force. All waste onboard, except food waste, has to be collected, or incinerated, according to the new IMO Marpol Annex V regulations. This requires storage space for waste onboard. In case there is not space enough compactors and other waste handling systems have to be acquired. Incinerators can be used, but not in all areas. For example in the Baltic Sea this is forbidden.
Evac can now provide a solution for the entire onboard waste handling needs. In short, the revisions to MARPOL Annex V as contained in resolution MEPC.201(62) prohibit the discharge of all garbage into the sea except as expressly permitted under specified circumstances for discharge of food waters, cargo residues, deck wash waters, and animal carcasses.
Having equipped thousands of ships with waste and sanitary systems, EVAC considers itself to be qualified as the natural single source provider of onboard waste management systems.
