In the ports of Primorye will ensure environmental safety

Today at a meeting in the Primorsky Territory administration the issue of ensuring ecological safety of oil products bunkering was discussed. The meeting participants expressed their views on the necessary measures to prevent pollution of the marine area. All Primorye residents have heard a recent incident in the Khasansky district, when the ship dumped water contaminated with oil products.

The head of the department for maritime surveillance in the Primorye Territory of the Department of Rosprirodnadzor for the Far Eastern Federal District Alexander Sergienko recalled that now the federal law strictly requires bunkering operations in the presence of bond fencing. However, this requirement is not always met.

Director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Primorsky Territory, Alexander Korshenko, suggested counting the environmental tax in the ports, taking into account the need to maintain a local environmental infrastructure that could provide environmental safety services. Korshenko also proposed to send a corresponding appeal to the Federal Tariff Service.

Another proposal of the department concerned the possibility of making changes to the state program "Environmental Protection for 2012-2020". Alexander Korshenko talked about adding a subprogram "Development of environmental port structures" to it.

The meeting participants agreed that the water areas of the seaside bays should be constantly checked. In addition, ships should be given the opportunity to take oil products and ballast water for processing and recycling instead of dumping them overboard.
