Why Flovac?

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Flovac vacuum sewer system stands out for its energy efficiency. With minimal energy consumption, it is presented as the most sustainable option currently available for the evacuation of gray water and hydrocarbons. Furthermore, being an airtight system, it completely eliminates unpleasant odors and prevents spills even in cases of pipe rupture.

International Adaptability

Flovac’s international experience has been key in adapting its system to the specific needs of the America’s Cup. With projects executed in various locations, from the Caribbean to Australia, we have demonstrated our ability to customize solutions according to the characteristics of each port.

Flovac and Sustainable Evolution in Marinas

Flovac is leading the way in sustainability at the America’s Cup, and has also taken its commitment to the next level by making participating teams users of its vacuum system. This represents a step forward in the implementation of eco-sustainable sanitation networks in port facilities, marking the path towards a cleaner and more responsible future.


With the America’s Cup just around the corner, Flovac presents itself as a key player in the search for sustainable solutions for sanitation in marinas. Our pneumatic vacuum valve system not only meets competition standards, but also sets a precedent for the adoption of green technologies in high-profile events. At Flovac, we are proud to continue leading sustainability and to be able to do so at the America’s Cup.
