Managing hazardous waste for shipyards


Managing hazardous waste for shipyards

Comprehensive waste management services for shipbuilders

For the most part, managing hazardous waste at shipyards involves complex requirements and the challenges faced by those providing the services can differ greatly according to assignment and project. Shipyards that focus on repair work need quick solutions as they often work to a very tight schedule and don’t always know what types or volumes of waste material will be generated until they actually start the project. In contrast, shipyards that build new boats generally have a much longer period of time to plan which also means that all waste and hazardous waste management tasks have to be meticulously planned well in advance as well. And then there are the efforts being made within the industry – and particularly in the cruise business – to become more sustainable. This, too, has led to the sector expecting top quality standards of waste management and recycling from its service providers. In other words: shipyards, shipping companies and cruise lines all require the highest levels of quality and flexibility when it comes to waste management.

Managing hazardous waste for shipyards

Shipyards have two major benefits when they opt to work with REMONDIS Industrie Service: they reduce their waste management workload to an absolute minimum and achieve the highest possible levels of sustainability. Thanks to our expertise within the REMONDIS Group, we are in a position to offer you a wide range of services covering many areas of your everyday business. We can, for example, handle your non-hazardous waste (such as metals, plastic and paper) in addition to your hazardous waste and deliver a wide variety of additional services, such as emptying and cleaning your separators or cleaning your storage tanks. No matter what the task, we always guarantee that the waste materials will be sent to the most appropriate facilities so that they can be recycled or disposed of using sustainable and environmentally sound processes.

Complex waste management solutions – from commercial to hazardous waste

Shipyards not only regularly generate hazardous waste but tonnes of commercial and non-hazardous waste as well – you only have to look at the large volumes of materials being delivered to their business every day. Thanks to our Germany-wide network of branches, we are able to provide them with a prompt collection service for all this waste, from plastic film through to paper and cardboard. It goes without saying that we organise everything here, starting with arranging the collection date and ending with the final logistics service required. You are given a dedicated contact person who is responsible for handling all your waste management requirements – a convenient and efficient system. By the way, the same is true for all the other services that are not delivered by REMONDIS Industrie Service’s team itself but are also of interest to shipyards. The REMONDIS Group also has, for example, highly qualified scaffolding experts and an internationally renowned metal recycling company. As a result, we bring maximum added value to your business at all times.
