Every time more civil engineering companies, marinas and ports are interested about this technology and its benefits. Vacuum sanitation provides service to the megayachts in the berth, as well as the facilities in the marina. All with one vacuum station. Vacuum sewage is ideal in flat areas as marinas and ports, 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 kilometer long luxury marinas.
In addition, vacuum sewerage is the most eco-friendly solution for marinas. Its pipes are hermetic and there are not filtrations to the marina. If the pipes had a breach, the system would stop as air enters the pipes net. It does not produce bad odor because there are not overflows of wastewater. Pipe network is installed in a superficial trench, so the high salty water level does not affect the correct functioning of the water treatment plant.
The Santa Pola case, where Flovac installed its sewage system, is a great example of the application of this type of sewer, as it was able to solve the infiltration problems in the collectors and the big instability of the subsoil. Furthermore, in the touristy locations obstructions caused by the ton of tourists, the beach bars, hotels, etc. are usual. This can not happen with a vacuum system, as any obstacles are swept along with the vacuum force.
