Complying with relevant environmental regulations and standards can be an expensive business if no waste management is applied.
High costs can typically be related to:
- Required space onboard
- Cost for disposal of waste ashore
- Cost for transport ashore of waste from vessel or rig
- Cost for labour onboard the vessel or rig
Typical parameters that will influence waste management costs are:
- Type of vessel and general layout
- Number of people onboard
- Regulations in the area of operations
- Ports of call
- Time between port calls
- Available storage space onboard
- How the waste is collected onboard
- Level of training provided for the crew
Overall, the costs of legally disposing of ship generated waste can be daunting, but with an efficient waste management system, they can be drastically reduced.
In a modern waste management system:
- Waste is kept in fractions to allow for recycling or controlled discharge when permitted.
- Volume is reduced to minimize the need for transport.
- Waste handling from ship/rig to port/waste station is optimized.
