Marine Pollution Prevention


The present training video is intended to supplement the guide devoted to the management of the engine room waste and treatment of the sewage and waste water in particular. Note that this set is one of the four-part training package with the other parts dealing with the oil record book, sludge and the incinerator, and oily water and separators, giving in total full picture of the shipboard waste management and all required instructions.

This video will provide trainees with the general information of shipboard sewage and waste water treatment. The trainees will know how the sewage treatment plant is constructed in general and will get understanding of its working principle. In addition to that, they will find the process of cleaning of the plant and its periodic technical maintenance demonstrated and duly explained.

They will also understand the requirements that shall be followed when discharging the shipboard wastes - such requirements shall always be considered in order to avoid any sort of pollution of the marine environment - and this includes the relevant sections of the Annex IV to the International MARPOL Convention covering the sewage pollution prevention, as applicable to the type and size of the vessel.

This film is about an important and vital aspect of our jobs - it will show the trainees how to deal with the shipboard wastes without breaking the rules and regulations, particularly ones contained in the MARPOL Convention. Let us have a look at the waste oil, sludge and bilge water transfer flow diagram. How is this compared with your previous ship?..

The present video training film is dealing with the sludge waste and use of the shipboard incinerator, and is supplemented with this training booklet released by the same maritime training provider. They both form a part of the four-section set addressing the problem of the shipboard waste management, three other parts of which are devoted to the oil record book, oily water and separator, and sewage and waste water management.

We highly recommend all our users and all crew members of all vessels regardless of their size and type to have a close look into the content of each part of this training package since it is critically important to be fully aware of the correct procedures of the waste management enabling crew members to manage the wastes in a manner compliant with the internationally recognized standards; failure to do so will eventually result in very serious consequences...

The last part of the training series devoted to the management of the shipboard wastes, with the other parts dealing with the oily water and separators, sewage and waste water management, and sludge and the incinerators. This video supplements the training booklet developed by the same training provider and addressing same important topic of the oil record book.

It goes without saying that all crew members on board shall be duly aware of the proper procedures established and implemented for the management of the wastes generated in the engine room of the vessel. The oil record book is considered one of the important parts of any shipboard waste management system.

That is why all persons on board and particularly those directly engaged in and responsible for the waste management shall have clear understanding of the content of the ORB, information that shall be contained therein and its proper arrangements, and also be able to maintain records in the oil record book in a timely and accurate manner. Taking into account the seriousness of the consequences of failure to follow the procedures of the shipboard waste management, we highly recommend all our users to check the content of all four parts of this training pack.

This section of the marine training will give some knowledge of the different threats of ballast water. Let us start with the environmental impact ballast water may have. Marine species are being carried around the world in ships' ballast water. When discharged into new environments, they may become invasive and severely disrupt the native ecology, impact economic activities such as fisheries and cause disease and even death in humans.

Unlike an oil spill, which can be cleaned up, the effects of marine species introductions are usually irreversible. It is estimated that more that seven thousand different species are carried around the world with the ships' ballast every day. Every nine weeks a marine species invades a new environment somewhere in the world. The list of species that have already hitchhiked with ballast water around the world and created damage to the environment includes north American comb jelly, Asian kelp, north pacific seastar, European green crab, zebra mussel, toxic algae, cholers, and many others.

This video will give you some information about each of the marine species causing unwanted impact on the environment. When fisheries, coastal industry and other commercial activities and resources are disrupted by the invading species, this is an example of the economical impact. It is estimated that the actual cost of all invasive marine species is in the vicinity of 183 billion dollars per year in the United States alone...

Shipping industry is permanently developing and now it is entering an absolutely new era. From now on, all ships will be obliged to sail not only safely but also with maximum energy efficiency. Energy efficiency has always been treated as a very important factor in shipping. Many shipping companies, certain ships and even individual crew members have all made significant efforts to reduce energy consumption on board their ships.

However, now energy efficiency must be considered a key factor of all shipping operations. The fundamental reason for this is cost saving. Reducing energy use saves money for the ship and the company. Obviously, should something go wrong with this, the costs will rise for the shipping company. That is why there is an increased competition for the cost saving though more efficient use of the fuel.

Another critically important factor is that increase of the energy efficiency will eventually lead to the reduced emission of the carbon dioxide considered one of the most serious environmental problems. The present video supplements the training booklet on the same problem and you are encouraged to use both of them as a set in order to achieve better training results.

The present training video should be treated as an integral part of the shipboard Garbage Management training that is required by the fifth annex to the MARPOL 73/78 convention. The video is intended to be viewed by the crew members in conjunction with the vessel's Garbage Management Manual.

It is covering the matters related to the implementation of the Annex V of the subject convention concerned with the garbage pollution prevention. Of course, all of us are aware of the dangers that the garbage pollution presents to the marine environment, that is why all measures shall be implemented in order to prevent such pollution from happening and it is considered a duty of every single person on board to maintain the shipboard wastes and generated garbage in accordance with the shipboard GMP, i.e. garbage management plan.

The present video is addressing the main aspects of the shipboard garbage and waste management and will be helpful to the persons intending to work on board. They will get all required information on the requirements applicable to the waste and garbage disposal, storage of the wastes on board, necessary arrangements that shall be in place, associated documentation etc.

An excellent video training devoted to the compliance with the requirements of the Annex VI to the IMO MARPOL Convention. This video was released to supplement the present booklet addressing same issue. We all see the huge benefits brought to our life by the global industrialization.

However, this all is at some cost, and sometime the cost is very high and unaffordable. In this video the authors have covered the atmospheric emissions that have the negative effect on the environment of our planet. In fact, this is the reason why the corresponding Annex to the Convention was presented and made mandatory for compliance to all vessels flying the flags of the countries that ratified subject Convention.

The video is recommended to all people working in the maritime industry, and particularly to the crew members since they carry the main responsibility for making their ships compliant.

This training video was released by Videotel Production in association with "The Steamship Mutual Underwriting Association". The content of the film is briefly explaining the major aspects of the Annex I to the IMO Convention Marine Pollution Prevention addressing the oil pollution prevention.

Having all crew members of the vessel duly informed about the importance on hold fully compliant with all requirements of the Marine Pollution Prevention requirements is of course a matter of utmost importance for the management of the shipping companies and ship officers.

Every single crew members on board and every employee of the maritime shipping company even if working ashore, shall have a clear understanding of the negative consequences the non-compliance with these requirements may have. That is why we highly recommend this short video training to all people in the maritime industry as the protection of the marine environment is definitely a common cause.
