Tanker ships carrying cargo especially liquid materials will need to be cleaned to avoid contamination during the next voyage. The tank cleaning process can be an expensive and pose an operational challenge due to the content of the cargo and the geographical accessibility of the vessel.
This is especially true for the transportation of fuel oil where the viscosity is high, which makes it stick to the walls of the tank. Over time, a semi-solid substance will be form which is extremely hard to be removed.
Furthermore, oil impurities will start to gather at the bottom of the tank, hence why the oil tanks has to be cleaned on a regular basis using a method called de-slopping where a vessel will discharge slop water to a land facility.
Pentas Flora handles disposal and treatment of wastewater from tank cleaning, slop and sludge from ship tanks and oil tanks.
