Bilge Water Guards
Bilge Water Guard (BWG) is a fully automated bilge discharge monitoring system which constantly oversees and monitors the oil content in all discharges overboard. By Wärtsilä Water & Waste.
Should the oil content rise above the set limit, the flow will be rerouted back to the bilge tank. The system logs the discharge quantity and oil content as well as time and location of the ship. All data is stored in memory for later retrieval.
The system is enclosed in a locked, tamper-proof cabinet and all accesses are logged in memory. For both crew members and ship management, the Wärtsilä Bilge Water Guard (BWG) provides a priceless safety net and possibility to make evident the compliance with applicable regulations.
