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.
