July 2023 – TBC

Received an urgent call for prompt assistance.

While discharging UREA in bulk from a seagoing vessel to a dedicated terminal,  crane hit the Diesel Oil bunker-tank which caused a rather large oil-spill straight into the hold filled with UREA.

MAC² Maritime offered its services which resulted in several cleanings, including the hold and the Diesel Oil tank concerned.     (needed to be repaired / hot works)

We took also care of full removal of the heavily contaminated UREA parcel which was re-packed and consequently disposed at an external incinerator facility.

(momentarily operation is still ongoing due to the large quantity)

Received several compliments from Shipowner, charterer and product producer.        


Ships produce vast amounts of garbage – Marpol V. Under the EU indirect fee system, ships can dispose these in Antwerp without additional charges (*). MAC² is authorized collector in that system and organizes 24/7 collection by barge, by truck, by drop-off container and at our terminal.

Engine sludges, slops, and EGS waste

Collecting and treating liquid maritime waste – Marpol I, II, IV and VI – waste, is at the core of our offering. Our 3 tanker barges operate 24/7, and are supported by truck collection for small quantities. Beneath the traditional sludges and slops, we also handle the more difficult low flash slops, pre-washes and scrubber waste. All waste is treated at our treatment plant in the 4th harbour dock, with maximum recycling of valuable components.
