Abstract [en]

This exam paper is about how shipping companies analyse various types of bilge water separators systems and on which grounds they choose a certain type of equipment. To answer our questions we chose to perform a survey regarding how Swedish shipping companies reason before they purchase bilge water separating equipment to their ships. Some of the questions we wanted to find answers to were questions about the equipments usability, reliability and economy of the equipment, in addition to that we also wanted to investigate how the companies regarded each particular when they were selecting bilge water equipment. Furthermore there were obviously also a lot of other interesting issues, which we have tried to shed some light on while conducting our survey. For reasons that mainly concerned the simple fact of being able to contact the various shipping companies, we chose only to include Swedish shipping companies in the survey. We chose to perform the interviews over the phone and to record them. We have used a variant of the qualitative method when conducting the interviews. Thereby letting the interviewees speak more freely about their own experiences and thoughts. We were interested to find out how the shipping companies reasoned, because according to rules and regulation they are obliged to have working and certified bilge water separators on board the ship. We found our approach effective and therefore it further enhanced and enlarged the scope of our exam paper. The main conclusions in this report could be summarized by stating that there were substantial differences between the principles how different shipping companies argued before acquiring bilge water separators. An additional conclusion would be that some shipping companies could actually improve some of their purchase strategies, and utilize a more carefully analyzed and cost related plan prior the purchase of equipment.

Abstract [sv]

Den här rapporten handlar om hur rederier resonerar kring länsvattenseparatorer och på vilka grunder de väljer en viss typ av länsvattenutrustning. För att få svar på dessa frågor valde vi att göra en undersökning av hur svenska rederier har resonerat när de valt länsvattenutrustning till sina fartyg. Några av de frågor som vi ville ha svar på var bland annat frågor om utrustningarnas användarvänlighet, driftsäkerhet och ekonomi och hur stor del de spelar in vid val av länsvattenseparator, men det var även många andra faktorer som vi fann intressanta.Anledningar som främst handlade om kontaktmöjligheter och eget intresse, bidrog till att vi valde enbart svenska rederier. Vi valde att utföra intervjuerna över telefon och att spela in dessa. Vi har använt en kvalitativ metod för att på så sätt låta intervjuobjekten berätta mer fritt om sina egna erfarenheter och tankegångar. Vi var intresserade av att ta reda på hur rederierna tänkte, då det enligt lag är ett reglerat krav att större fartyg skall ha en fungerande och med certifikat godkänd länsvattenseparator. Med detta i åtanke fann vi ämnet mycket intressant.

De resultat vi har fått fram i undersökningen skulle man kunna sammanfatta, som att det finns ganska stora skillnader mellan hur rederierna resonerar kring länsvattenseparatorer och att vissa rederier har möjlighet till en del förbättringar på områden, som till exempel upphandling av utrustning.
