Green Shipping

MES is your dedicated partner taking care your vessels remain compliant with current and future rules and regulations. In addition we offer all services to help you in protecting the environment under full consideration of legal, commercial and ecological aspects.

Ballast Water Treatment

Ballast water is absolutely essential to the safe and efficient operation of modern shipping, providing balance and stability to unladen ships. How to obtain compliance with both IMO and USCG regulations under consideration of commercial surroundings?

MES guides you through the ballast water treatment plant selection, with the main objective to select a cost-efficient and compliant treatment plant most suitable and tailored to your requirements. We provide a tailored retrofitting service suiting your needs.

Exhaust Gas Cleaning

Seagoing ships with diesel engines must comply with IMO MARPOL Annex VI regulation 13 and the NOx Technical Code 2008. You are facing a number of questions related to costs, benefits, and possible difficulties of using various fuel technologies, machinery and scrubber concepts to comply with the sulphur emission regulation.Ever-tightening regulations within Emission Control Areas (ECAs) will continue to present significant challenges.

We find be the best way for you to achieve compliance providing decision-making support for optimised compliance, tailored to your specific conditions, operation and requirements. In result you receive an independent solution based on a holistic, pragmatic approach considering your specific need. Compliance with emission regulations is assured, while offering the flexibility and cost-efficiency to apply exhaust gas cleaning technologies tailored to your need.

Energy Efficiency

Investing in energy-efficiency products and services can help to reduce operating costs, improve the maritime environment and contribute to increased transportation capabilities. On the income statement, this means lower expenses and increased profits. For shipowners and operators these investments can help balance a reduced budget and possibly create new vessel employment opportunities.

Our energy efficiency services are unique, standardized but flexible, aiming for excellence at very reasonable costs / pricing ratio and very competitive in current tough market. We define a new standard for energy efficiency offering service excellence, lowest CAPEX / OPEX and highest quality. Controlling and improving the energy use, consumption and efficiency does not only have an impact to the environment, but also a commercial contribution for our stakeholders. We are committed to continuously assess and improve our energy performance solutions by increasing the knowledge and awareness inside our company, by identifying, developing and implementing services and products that improve the efficient utilisation of energy.

Bio Fouling

While ballast water is essential for safe and efficient modern shipping operations, the multitude of marine species carried in it pose serious ecological, economic and health problems. Biofouling is also considered one of the main vectors for bioinvasions and is described as the undesirable accumulation of microorganisms, plants, algae and animals on submerged structures (especially ships’ hulls).

MES supports you that your ships reducing the risk of establishment of invasive aquatic species which may pose threats to human, animal and plant life, economic and cultural activities and the aquatic environment.

Noise Pollution

Continuous noise onboard ships can have an adverse impact on human health. The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) conducted a code setting out mandatory maximum noise level limits for machinery spaces, control rooms, workshops, accommodation and other spaces on board ships.

Studies have shown that underwater-radiated noise from commercial ships may have both short and long-term negative consequences on marine life, especially marine mammals. We address noise from commercial shipping and its adverse impact on human and marine life understanding the impact of noise from shipping and its need to prevent the risk of exposure.
