The project is a consultancy service called „Strategic Adviser”, which aims to update and expand the scope of the available waste reception and handling plans (WRHP) in ports of national importance. It presents an assessment of the need to implement facilities for prevention and response to operational or accidental pollution in indoor waters and in the coastal area of the port area as well as for the reception of these wastes. The project includes an assessment of the need to implement and develop an integrated information system (IIS), integrating and presenting in an appropriate way the results, information flows and data from the deployed information systems related to the functions performance of BPI Co.

The territorial scope for the implementation of the project includes the five Bulgarian ports of national importance located on the Black Sea and in the Bulgarian stretch of the River Danube.

 

Main objective: To provide highly qualified and specific consultancy assistance for the preparation and implementation of an investment project through which the management of the environment in the field of water transport will be improved.

 

Specific objectives:

  1. Improve the efficiency of waste management in ports of national importance by updating the waste reception and handling plans and the introduction of requirements for complementary facilities for prevention and response to operational or accidental pollution and their alignment with the applicable regulations;
  2. Development and creation of conditions for prevention and reduction of pollution; predictability and safety of port activity and water transport through the development of an integrated information platform (IIP) for control and monitoring of waste management activities in the Bulgarian ports for public transport;
  3. Preparation of an investment project under OPTTI 2014-2020 to improve the technical possibilities for reception of ship-generated waste in public transport ports of national importance, including implementation of complimentary facilities for prevention and response to operational or accidental pollution.

 

Expected result:

The implementation of the project through the effective management of waste in ports of national importance will improve environmental management in the field of water transport.
