From Spain to the Caribbean or Vietnam, luxury marinas prefer vacuum sewerage
Some marinas around the world have shown interest in Flovac’s vacuum sewerage. This system allows service to be provided to the luxury mega yachts in the berth, as well as the facilities in the marina. Only with one vacuum station. Vacuum sewage is ideal in flat areas as ports and marinas, as it works with vacuum force to take waste water to the station. There is no need for pumping or deep trenches. With a lift design, pipe network is installed in a superficial trench, even in more than one kilometre long luxury marinas.
Flovac’s system for luxury marinas works with turrets which provide service to the yachts in their berth. A fast connection with a flexible hose can be attached to the boat’s waste water outlet. Recollection pits are small and they are installed one meter deep. They can be installed deeper according to the needs of the project, even reaching 40 meters deep. The valve inside the pits is already assembled and it is only necessary to make the connections. In this process there is no need to use any electric energy but in the vacuum station. This can be installed wherever the project demands. Unlike the gravity systems, it doesn’t have to be on the seafront.
Green sewerage in luxury marinas
Environmental regulators require today that boat owners have a MARPOL certificate from the marina to prove that they didn’t throw their waste water to the sea. Luxury marinas with Flovac’s system can issue these certificates. Furthermore, vacuum sewerage is the most eco-friendly solution for marinas. Its pipes are hermetic and there aren’t filtrations to the marina. If the pipes had a breach, the system would stop as air enters the pipes net. It doesn’t produce bad odour because there aren’t overflows of waste water.
Luxury marinas that, as Glossy Bay (Canouan), already count with Flovac’s vacuum sewerage, enjoy the comfort of our vacuum stations plug & play system. This system allows containerize the station so it’s only necessary to transport it and connect it. For all these reasons, luxury marinas from around the world are talking about Flovac’s vacuum sanitation system.
