Delivery of oil residues and waste from a vessels’s engine room
Oil residues and waste that occur normally in a vessels’s engine room may be left free of charge at the Port of Oxelösund on the following conditions: (“Normally” means what can be held in the keel under the machine room, sludge and bilge water tanks).
- The waste must originate from a vessel that is moored in the Port of Oxelösund and must not have a flash point below 60°C or other components classified as “hazardous goods”.
- An order for collection must be submitted at least 24 hours before delivery. The order must be submitted to the port’s transport office, on tel. +46 (0)155-25 81 50 on weekdays (excl. public holidays) between 08:00–12:00 and 13:00–16:00. The order must include details of quantity, type of waste, components in waste, how it is intended to deliver the waste and, if the waste can be pumped, what kind of connection is required. There should ideally be an international connection with an outlet on deck. The transport office notifies the client at which berth delivery is to take place and in what way.
- If delivery does not take place at the agreed time, the additional cost incurred is charged.
- If collection takes place using a sludge collection vehicle, the delivery time must be agreed. The vehicle’s waiting time after the agreed time is limited to a maximum of 15 minutes, including the time to connect the hose. Waiting time in addition to this is charged to the vessel, although not any costs that may be attributed to the vehicle’s late arrival.
- If the vessel is to deliver the waste using its own pump, this must take place at a speed of no less than 5 m³ per hour. If this is not possible, the additional cost of this is charged.
- There must be a person on board the vessel with responsibility for delivery, who receives and connects the hose to the vessel, monitors the pumping process and generally assists the recipient. If collection takes place using a sludge collection vehicle, the driver must keep the vehicle and hose under constant supervision for any oil spillage in the quayside. The driver of the vehicle is responsible for oil spillages from the vehicle.
- If waste is delivered in barrels, the vessel must arrange for these to be placed in the location designated by the port authority. Barrels must be intact and sealed when delivered. Costs of cleaning spillages caused by leaking barrels and the costs of special handling because of an obvious risk of leakage are charged to the vessel.
- A written declaration of the content of the waste must be delivered to the recipient upon request. The above information is handed to the vehicle’s driver upon collection.
When barrels are placed on the quayside, they must be permanently and clearly marked (not in water soluble paint) with the content and the name of the vessel.
- What is stated above in respect of a vehicle as a transport provider also applies to other means of transport.
