Ship waste management system launched

French company Ship Waste Agency has introduced its SWANET platform, an internet-based tool for ship waste management and optimisation.

The system includes a vessel-based solution (SWABOARD), set up on a computer onboard via a single CD or download link, and a shoreside internet platform (SWASHORE) which acts as the link between local operators and vessels.

The application is used to manage communication flows between involved parties and issue the electronic documents imposed by the IMO regarding waste management, such as the Advance Notification Form (ANF) or Waste Delivery Receipt (WDR). These documents can be filled in on the vessel or ashore.

Additional services such as an Onboard Waste Management tool and a reporting tool for onboard waste flows (including log books) are also available, as is a WUR (Waste Unloading Request) option, a form sent directly to the collector underlining all waste specifications.

Stakeholders can have ‘live access’ to vessel waste specifications and all updated technical data, with the aim of speeding up the issuing of electronic waste delivery receipts after unloading.

A Port Portal is also offered, with information on all port reception facilities worldwide, including availability, which equipment and tools are being provided, their cost, and schedules.

Ship Waste Agency says that the tool will offer shipping companies the chance to share details of their waste management with the public, to demonstrate the environmental friendliness of their operations.

The SWANET platform is available with a yearly subscription.
