Tanker ships carrying cargo especially liquid materials will need to be cleaned to avoid contamination during the next voyage. The 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. Hence, oil desludging and de-slopping is a highly important process.
Furthermore, oil impurities will start to gather at the bottom of the tank. Hence, the oil tanks has to be cleaned on a regular basis using a method called desludging and 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. These waste materials from ships can either be loaded onto our oil barges or road tankers. Waste materials from port / shore facilities will be loaded directly into road tankers. Each and every drop of oil sludge or slop material will be treated according to the highest DOE’s environmental standards before it is recycled for other industry uses.
The general rule is if your company owns/manage/operate ships, such as shipping liners or ship charterers for cruises, desludging and de-slopping services will be needed. Over time, the bottom of the tank will contain residue which is required to be cleaned to upkeep the prime condition of the ship.
