We are keen and compliant towards ship recycling in a greener way.
Some of the best work practices towards preventing environmental pollution are
1. HAZARDOUS MATERIAL MANAGEMENT
Inventory of hazardous material report is prepared by Class Certified competent Agency. All hazardous materials are identified as per MEPC norms prior to dismantling of vessel.
Our facility has prepared procedures for handling of each hazardous material which is strictly followed by our HSE Team.
2. RECOVERY OF OZONE DEPLETING SUBSTANCES
Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) are those substances which deplete the ozone layer and are widely used in refrigerators, air conditioners, fire extinguishers, insulation on ship, in dry cleaning as solvents for cleaning, electronic equipment and as agricultural fumigants. ODS recovery is done by our facility’s selected sub-contractor prior to dismantling to minimize risk of leakages.
3. PREVENTION OF OIL SPILLAGE
We have developed impermeable floor for cleaning of oily blocks, storage of oily machinery and Oil debunkering area.
In case of oil spill emergency, we have in house emergency team which can prevent the oil spill with Oil spill kit and rescue boat.
4. Slag Collection
We use self-fabricated slag collectors during cutting in order to prevent any slag falling into the intertidal zone or in sea.
5. LIFTING OF BLOCKS
Each and every blocks of vessel are lifted with heavy duty cranes to avoid any contamination to sea or at Intertidal Zone. Each blocks are directly transferred to Impermeable floor for cutting.
6. ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING
We have an effective environmental monitoring plan to test all the parameters such as noise pollution ,ambient air pollution, soil contamination, sea water pollution, drinking water to keep them under check and compliant to our green recycling standards. Environment monitoring helps us to check the level of pollution with relations to past data. It is used for assessment of effectiveness of our ship recycling program.
7. Drainage system
We also have a effective drainage system at our yard which collects all the any rain/or stray water in the designated tanks to prevent it to run-off into the intertidal zone
8. INTERTIDAL ZONE CLEANING
Our workers in our facility everyday 2 times before and after high tide, cleans the debris or any foreign contaminants from Intertidal zone.
