Rain run-off on board of oil platforms and ships is polluted with production residues and contaminants such as oil, sand and dirt. The rainwater with these contaminants must be collected in special tanks and properly disposed of. A reliable level measurement in the tank protects against overflow of the open drain removing the possibility of subsequent marine pollution.
