The industry is committed to strict adherence to International Maritime Organisation (IMO) requirements concerning the use of Oily Water Separators and the monitoring and discharge of oil into the sea.
PSM has developed ClearView to provide a reliable method of prevention against illegal oily water overboard discharge. This type of bilge discharge is considered to be one of the major factors contributing to the pollution of the ocean, and vessels are under increasing scrutiny by Port State Control (PSC) surveyors worldwide.
Marpol 73/78 is the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution From Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978. ("Marpol" is short for marine pollution and 73/78 short for the years 1973 and 1978.)
Marpol 73/78 is one of the most important international marine environmental conventions. It was designed to minimize pollution of the seas, including dumping, oil and exhaust pollution. Its stated object is: to preserve the marine environment through the complete elimination of pollution by oil and other harmful substances and the minimization of accidental discharge of such substances.
All ships flagged under countries that are signatories to MARPOL are subject to its requirements, regardless of where they sail and member nations are responsible for vessels registered under their respective nationalities.
ClearView has been specifically designed to monitor, measure and prevent illegal oily water discharge to sea and will record if an incident has taken place. PSM has ensured that ClearView demonstrates MARPOL Compliance and US Coast Guard Compliance, that it is compatible with all IMO Resolutions MEPC 107 (49) and also meets SCG MED requirements.
