Oil in Water
Oil spills and oil discharge are some of the most well-known risks of operating a ship. Monitoring and recording the oil content of almost all discharged water is required to obtain an IOPP certificate. Ballast water from cargo tanks and wash water from cargo tanks must be sampled by an ODME [MEPC.108(49)] and all bilge water discharges must be monitored by a bilge water or 15ppm alarm [MEPC.107(49)] to avoid excessive oil in the discharge water. Insatech Marine is authorized to deliver, install and service some of the major brands of both ODME and 15 ppm alarms.
