Spain’s Sener Group has been tasked with the basic and detail engineering for two double-hulled vessels for collecting liquid oily waste from ships and solid waste in compliance with MARPOL regulations.
The two work barges are for the shipbuilder Tecnología Medio Ambiente (TMA), and they are being built in Galicia’s Nodosa Shipyard.
The larger barge has six tanks for storing liquid waste, with a total capacity of 230m3. For solid waste, equipment for loading and unloading six containers has been installed on the cargo deck. This ship also boasts a hydraulically operated telescopic crane for moving the containers.
The smaller barge has two MARPOL waste tanks with a capacity of 32.5m3, four containers on deck for collecting solid waste, and a hydraulic crane.
