  • The information contained in these Guidelines should be regarded as guidance in achieving an efficient and effective system for the handling of oily bilge water and oily residues (sludge) for new buildings and, where applicable and reasonable, for ships which are in service. The information should be considered in conjunction with specific conditions and circumstances, shipowners' and shipbuilders' practices, classification society rules, Administration requirements, etc., applicable to specific ships.

    4.1 The unified interpretations of MARPOL should further be considered in achieving an
    efficient and effective system for the handling of oily water bilge and oil residue (sludge).

05 Definitions for the purpose of the Guidelines

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

5 Definitions for the purpose of the Guidelines

5.1 Oily waste means oil residues (sludge) and oily bilge water.

5.2 Oil residue (sludge) means the residual waste oil products such as those resulting from the
purification of fuel or lubricating oil from main or auxiliary machinery or separated waste oil from bilge water separators, oil filtering equipment or oil collected in drip trays, and waste hydraulic and lubricating oils.

5.3 Oil residue (sludge) tanks are the tanks which hold oil residue (sludge) directly from which
oil residue (sludge) may be disposed through the standard discharge connection or any other
approved means of disposal.

5.4 Oily bilge water holding tanks are tanks collecting oily bilge water prior to its discharge,
transfer or disposal.

5.5 Regulations referred to in these Guidelines are those contained in MARPOL Annex I adopted by resolution MEPC.117(52).

5.6 Oil residue (sludge) incineration systems are systems proving incineration of oil residue
(sludge) generated on board seagoing ships. Oil residue (sludge) incineration systems could be:

  1. main and auxiliary steam boilers with appropriate oil residue (sludge) processing systems;
  2. heaters of thermal fluid systems with appropriate oil residue (sludge) processing systems;
  3. incinerators with appropriate oil residue (sludge) processing systems designed for sludge incineration; or
  4. inert gas systems with appropriate oil residue (sludge) processing systems.


    Oil residue (sludge) incineration systems shall conform to regulation 16 in MARPOL Annex VI.

5.7 Oil residue (sludge) drain tanks are:

  1. tanks intended to receive separated sludge from purifiers and other oil residue (sludge) drains;
  2. tanks without any means for disposal of sludge as listed in items 3.2 and 4 in the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate, and drains; and
  3. tanks with suction connection for a sludge collecting pump only capable of discharging to the oil residue (sludge) tank(s) listed in item 3.1 in the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate.

06 Colection and storage of oil residue

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

6 Collection and storage of oil residue (sludge) and oily bilge water

6.1 An oil residue (sludge) tank or tanks are mandatory under regulation 12 in the revised MARPOL Annex I.

6.2 An oily bilge water holding tank is arranged to receive the daily generation of oily bilge water before this water is discharged ashore or discharged through the 15 ppm bilge separator overboard. An oily bilge water holding tank is not mandatory, but will enable ships to operate safely during port visits, during operation in special areas and coastal waters and during periods of maintenance of the 15 ppm bilge separator.

6.3 An oily bilge water holding tank will also provide additional safeguards in the purification of oily bilge water should quick-separating detergents be used for cleaning purposes.

6.4 Oily bilge water holding tanks shall, if fitted, be noted in the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate.

07 Arrangements for oil residue

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

7 Arrangements for oil residue (sludge) and oily bilge water tanks

7.1 Tanks for the purposes mentioned above should be arranged to satisfy the intended service of the ship.

7.2 Oil residue (sludge) tanks may be separate and independent but may also be combined, as suitable, depending on the size and the service of the ship.

7.3 The merits of arranging an independent tank for the collection of separated sludge should be considered, having regard to the smaller tank volume that needs to have cleaning and heating arrangements and the reduced space requirement for tank capacity that should preferably be arranged
above the tank top.

7.4 If an oily bilge water holding tank is arranged, it should be separate and independent from other tanks for the collection of oil residue (sludge).

7.5 Ships operating with heavy fuel oil of a relative density greater than 0.94 at 15°C should be provided with an oily bilge water holding tank of adequate capacity and fitted with heating facilities to preheat the oily mixture prior to the discharge of the tank¿s contents into the sea through the 15 ppm bilge separator.

08 Size of oily residue

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

8 Size of oily residue (sludge) and oily bilge water tanks

8.1 Tanks for collection of oily waste from various functions in the engine-room should have adequate capacity, having regard to the intended type of service of the ship. The information given below will provide guidance in this respect, but all other aspects applicable to the specific vessel trading pattern and time in port should additionally be taken into account.

8.2 The recommended capacity for oil residue (sludge) tanks is specified in the interpretations to regulation 12.

8.3 Oily bilge water holding tanks, if fitted, should have a capacity that provides to the ship the flexibility of operation in ports, coastal waters and special areas, without the need to discharge de-oiled water overboard. The operational merit of not having to operate the 15 ppm bilge separator frequently should also be considered. The recommended capacity of oily bilge water holding tanks should be as follows:

Main engine rating (kW) capacity (m³)
up to 1,0004
Above 1,000 up to 20,000P/250
Above 20,000 40+P/500





Where: P = main engine rating in kW.

For ships adopting IBTS, the capacity oily bilge water holding tanks may be reduced.

09 Pumping, piping and discharge systems

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

9 Pumping, piping and discharge systems in machinery spaces

9.1 On board ships, the propulsion systems of which are operated by heavy fuel oil, the following guidelines are provided for the piping system comprising the plant components for the treatment and storage of oily bilge water, oil residue (sludge), drain and leakage oil and exhausted oil.

9.2 The effluent from the 15 ppm bilge separators should be capable of being recycled to the oily bilge or oily bilge water holding tank.

9.3 If an integral pump is fitted, the discharge must not bypass the 15 ppm bilge separator.

9.4 The discharge piping system of the 15 ppm bilge water separator should be completely separate from the bilge pumping and ballast water system except the recycling line referred to in paragraph 9.2.

9.5 Discharge piping systems fitted to secure the safety of the ship in emergency situations, such as fire or flooding, should efficiently and promptly tackle such emergencies and therefore should be available at all times in order to comply with the provisions of SOLAS regulation II-1/21. Accordingly, the bilge overboard discharges should not be blanked off and remain operational at all times.

9.6 The ship¿s discharge pipeline for oily residue (sludge) to the standard discharge connection should not be connected to any system other than supplying those means of disposal to be listed in the IOPP supplement.

9.7 The separated dirty water and exhausted control water of fuel oil purifiers should be discharged into a particular tank for this purpose in order to minimize the influx to the oil residue (sludge) drain tank for separated sludge. This particular tank should be located above the double bottom for the purpose of facilitating its drain without the need of a drain pump. If dirty water and exhausted control water from purifiers is not discharged to a particular tank, and in lieu of this to a oil residue (sludge) drain tank for separated sludge, the tank should be located above the double bottom for the purpose of the aforementioned draining facilities.

9.8 Piping to and from sludge tanks shall have no direct connection overboard, other than the standard discharge connection required by regulation 13.

10 Systems for separated sludge

Appendix 1 Guidance notes

Ingangsdatum: 25-08-2011

01 Introduction

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

Guidance notes for an integrated bilge water Treatment system (IBTS)

1 Introduction

1.1 Oily bilge water is generated by the leakage of water and oil from the equipment and piping or maintenance works resulting from the routine operation in machinery space of ships. Such leaked oil and water are usually mixed and collected on the tank top or bilge wells as oily bilge water.

1.2 Oily bilge water shall be treated in accordance with the requirements of the Convention. The operation of such treatment, including the operation and maintenance of the oily water separator, is a heavy load for engineers onboard.

1.3 After the revision of the Guidelines and Specifications for Pollution Prevention Equipment for Machinery Space Bilge of Ships adopted by resolution MEPC.107(49), the capability of oily water separators has been improved. However, the treatment process of oily bilge water with the improved equipment and the engineers¿ load will be basically unchanged as the amount of oily bilge water generated in ships has not been reduced.

1.4 To promote the prevention of oil pollution from machinery spaces of ships and reduce the load of the engineers onboard, it is effective to minimize the amount of oily bilge water generated in machinery spaces.

1.5 MEPC 54 noted the design with the concept of Integrated Bilge Water Treatment System (IBTS) which provides the means to minimize the amount of oily bilge water and process the oily bilge water and oil residue (sludge) as a drastic solution to prevent oil pollution from machinery spaces of ships.

1.6 MEPC 54, in recognizing the need to disseminate the concept of IBTS, agreed to append the Guidance notes on IBTS to the revised Guidelines for systems for handling oily wastes in machinery spaces of ships.

1.7 The purpose of these Guidance notes is to provide shipowners and shipbuilders with information to help in the design of ships incorporating the concept of IBTS.

02 Concept of (IBTS)

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

2 Concept of Integrated Bilge Water Treatment System (IBTS)

The Integrated Bilge Water Treatment System (IBTS) is a system to minimize the amount of oily bilge water generated in machinery spaces by treating the leaked water and oil separately. It also provides an integrated means to process the oily bilge water and oil residue (sludge).

03 Purpose of the Guidance notes

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

3 Definitions for the purpose of the Guidance notes

3.1 "Clean drains" mean internal drains such as those resulting from the leakage of and condensate from equipment used for seawater, fresh water, steam, air conditioning, etc., which are not normally contaminated by oil.

3.2 "Oily drains" mean drains such as those resulting from the leakage of equipment used for oil and drains from equipment which under normal circumstances may contain oil.

3.3 "Oily bilge water" means water collected in the bilge wells or the tank top such as those resulting from the unexpected leakage from piping or the maintenance work in machinery spaces, which may be contaminated by oil.

3.4 "Oil residue (sludge)": refer to paragraph 5.2 of the revised Guidelines; includes oily drains.

3.5 "Bilge primary tank" means a pre-treatment unit for separation of oily bilge water.

3.6 "Clean water holding tank" means tanks which hold processed water from the oil filtering
equipment.

04 Outline of IBTS

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

4 Outline of IBTS

4.1 Collection of drains

4.1.1 Oily drains are collected through the fixed drainage arrangements to oil residue (sludge) tanks.

4.1.2 Clean drains are collected through the fixed drainage arrangements to clean drain tanks.

4.1.3 Oily drains and clean drains should be collected separately so as not to contaminate clean drains with oil.

4.2 Pre-treatment of oily bilge water
To avoid feeding excessive oil to oil filtering equipment, oily bilge water in the bilge wells is transferred to the bilge primary tank for pre-separation of oil. The high oil content water is transferred to sludge tanks and the low oil content water is transferred to the bilge water holding tank.

4.3 Discharge of oily bilge water

4.3.1 Oily bilge water in the bilge water holding tank is discharged overboard through the oily water separator in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Convention.

4.3.2 Clean water which has been processed trough the oil filtering equipment may only be discharged through the 15 ppm bilge alarm combined with an automatic stopping device by means of a separate clean water pump.

4.4 Discharge of clean drains
Clean drains may be discharged overboard directly through the discharge arrangement, independent from the system for oily bilge water or oil.

4.5 Treatment of oil residue (sludge)

4.5.1 Oil residue (sludge) may be collected in separate tanks designated for fuel oil residues and lubrication oil residues respectively.

4.5.2 Water in oil residue (sludge) may be evaporated by heating in the oil residue (sludge) service tanks.

4.5.3 Oil residue (sludge) may be incinerated by the sludge incineration system or disposed of to the reception facilities through the standard discharge connection.

4.6 Re-generating fuel oil from sludge

4.6.1 Oil residue (sludge) may be used onboard as re-generated fuel. Oil residue (sludge) is collected in an oil residue (sludge) tank prior to processing (disposal) back into the fuel oil system as re-generated fuel oil.

4.6.2 Oily drains should be recorded in the oil record book as any other oil residue (sludge) collection.

4.6.3 Re-generation of fuel oil from oil residue (sludge) should be an approved means of disposal of oil residue (sludge) according to the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate.

4.6.4 The re-generating process may include filtration, decanting or purification to remove unwanted heavy parts from the oil residue (sludge).

4.6.5 The re-generated fuel oil when used in a SECA must comply with SECA fuel oil quality requirements.

4.6.6 The re-generated fuel is fed back into the vessel¿s fuel oil system at a rate equal to or less than the average sludge production on board. This is in order not to change the emission level of the exhaust when using the fuel oil with added re-generated fuel oil compared to using fuel oil as delivered without prior sludge separation.

05 Additional installations of IBTS

Ingangsdatum: 12-11-2008

5 Additional installations of IBTS

In addition to the installations required by the Convention, the following installations should form part of the IBTS:

5.1 Drainage system

5.1.1 Drip trays or coamings with sufficient depth should be provided under the equipment used for oil such as diesel engines, burners, pumps, heaters, coolers, filters and tanks to contain spillage of oil.

5.1.2 Drip trays or coamings with sufficient depth should be provided under the equipment used for water such as pumps, heaters, coolers, filters, tanks, condensers and boilers to contain spillage of water.

5.1.3 Independent drainage arrangements for oil and water to sludge tanks and the bilge water holding tank should also be provided. Any open water drain in the engine-room falls under the definition of oily bilge water from engine-rooms. Such water shall be disposed ashore or via an oily water separator overboard.

5.1.4 Independent drainage of clean water drains from equipment not normally containing oil should be to clean water tanks.

5.2 Pre-treatment unit for oil separation
Pre-treatment may take place in dedicated equipment or bilge primary tanks. A bilge primary tank is a tank which separates oil from oily bilge water by gravity. It may make use of a cascade with drainage facilities for the oil on the top so as to enable primary separation of oily bilge water. Facilities to remove sediments should be provided.

Refer to the example of a bilge primary tank shown in Figure 1.


Figure 1 - Example of a bilge primary tank


5.3 Storage tanks

5.3.1 Clean drain tank: Tank for the retention of clean drains.

5.3.2 Oily bilge water holding tank: Tank for the retention of oily bilge water.

5.3.3 Oil residue (sludge) service tanks: Tank for preparation of oil residue (sludge) for incineration.

5.4 Discharge arrangement of clean drains
The overboard discharge arrangement of clean drains should be independent from the system for oily bilge water. Cleaning of equipment having clean drains should take account of the proper handling of chemical cleaning agents (e.g., emulsifiers) and wash water residue (including soot and sooty oil). The cleaning agent/wash water residue can foul an oil filtration system and should therefore be subjected to separate collection and/or filtration (e.g., portable units).

5.5 Exclusive pump for the oily water separator
It is preferable that an exclusive pump be provided to transfer the pre-treated bilge water from the oily bilge water holding tank to the oily water separator so as not to mix the pre-treated bilge water with untreated oily bilge water.

5.6 Heating arrangement

5.6.1 Heating arrangement for the bilge primary tank to facilitate separation of oil.

5.6.2 Heating arrangement for the waste oil tank to vaporize water and facilitate incineration.
