Tanker Port – Green Island Budapest Project
Unique, environmental, high quality port in Budapest
The Green Island is a multifunctional and innovative service unit for the shippers, where they can refuel, take wastewater and use other necessary services. The Green Island applies an unexampled technology and it operates in the name of the environmental protection, as it uses solar cells to gain energy, and also takes over and treats some of the environment polluting wastes on the spot.
Everything in one place
The only European port is transferred and become operational in the Budapest section of the Danube which offers bunker service, take over the bilge water, spent oil and as additional service it provides engine-oil, shipping accessories and drinking water containers for ships of all sizes on the Danube. This services stand as a consequent, environmental shipping trademark of the Green Island.
Budapest has outstanding shipping facilities, but the handling of the wastewater is an issue that has not been resolved yet. The Green Island Project was created in order to solve the waste problem, which according to the present age provides the ships an easy way to get rid of the bilge water, wastewater and other wastes.
Unique on the European waves
The ship stations are typically specialized in drinking water or take over waste and bunkering. There is no other station or port where these services could be used at the same time. From now on sailors in the area of Budapest can enjoy these luxuries. The Green Island provides a complex solution: bunker services or environmental disposal of hazardous wastes. For its operation uses solar cells to gain energy and take over and treat on the spot some of the environment polluting wastes.
There is a serious necessity for the proper handling and environmental treat of the bilge water and wastewater. The Green Island gives a high-tech solution for this problem. For its help the entire Danube region’s water quality can change significantly. The Green Island staff is waiting for the ships to ensure refueling, waste disposal and other important services smooth constant in 24h hours duty shift.
