Uson Marine AB, a leading provider of waste management systems to the marine and offshore industries, and Marine Position AB, have reached an agreement where Uson Marine AB will be the distributor of the Seatrade award winning Environmental Navigator, a product developed by Marine Position. The product will be sold and marketed under the name Uson Clean Pilot.
Complying with regulations a major challenge
Today’s ships’ captains face a complex web of international and national environmental regulations, special areas and marine sanctuaries, emission controlled areas and other local directives. Since all the regulations change continuously according to the ship’s position, it has become almost impossible for captains to comply at all times. In response to this challenge Marine Position developed its environmental navigation system, the Environmental Navigator.
Environmental Navigator simplifies compliance
The first system of its type, the Environmental Navigator greatly simplifies complying with marine waste regulations at sea. Connected to the ship’s GPS, the Environmental Navigator provides an update in real time of the applicable regulations (IMO/MARPOL and most of the regional and local regulations) at the current position. The information is graphically visualized on the bridge or in the engine room control room.
The unit displays information on: bilge water, sewage and grey water, garbage and food waste, incinerator and sulfur emissions, cargo (oil in slop tank through the ODME), and ballast water. It reduces the risk of illegal/faulty discharge and assists in the optimization of fuel handling (high/low sulfur). The Environmental Navigator strengthens the environmental profile of the company and acts as a powerful tool at port state control.
A logical addition to Uson Marine’s product portfolio
An innovative waste management tool that will make life easier for seafarers around the globe, the Uson Clean Pilot will be a logical complement to Uson Marine AB’s product portfolio. Its inclusion in Uson’s range aligns with the company’s strategy to be at the forefront for innovative waste management solutions within the marine and offshore segments.
