Eco Act (Environmental Achievement)
Our Eco Act
Approach to the Ship Recycling Convention
In preparation for the Ship Recycling Convention which will become effective in 2020, our LPG VLGC "BW TOKYO" built in 2009 was the first NK Class vessel to receive this licence thanks to special cooperation from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Installation of scrubbers
Ahead of the 2020 restrictions on SOx, we have already equipped two vessels with scrubber technology to reduce SOx and air pollutants. We plan to also actively equip our vessels with new technology for environmental conservation in the future.
Meiji shipping group original marine pollution control measures
Our group ship management company, MMS, adopts its own particilar method of preventing marine pollution by us of OCM (Oil Contamination Monitor) equipment. Any oily water with a concentration of more than 15ppm cannot be released into the sea and is normally stored onboard. On our vessels we have special equipment to completely incinerate this waste.
