First reference for Clarimar MF system
The new chemical-free water treatment system will gain its first reference on 'Acta Orion'
The new waste water treatment system from ACO Marine will be installed on Acta Marine’s state-of-the-art wind farm support vessel (WFSV) ‘Acta Orion’.
The unit has been specifically designed for chemical-free compliance with IMO resolution MEPC 227(64) on effluent standards for treatment plants. It will be installed onboard Acta Orion at the Partner Stocznia shipyard in Police, Poland.
Mark Beavis, managing director, ACO Marine said: “The operational parameters of this high-end WFSV required a robust, effective and reliable system capable of managing the wastewater requirement of a crew of 75 on station for two-weeks at a time. Our Clarimar MF-3 and Clarimar MF-10 units ensure the vessel has the capacity to treat up to 37,800l of waste water per day.”
The 108m long, 16m wide DP2 vessel, designed by CIG, will be the largest ship in the Acta Marine fleet when it is delivered this year. It will operate under charter to Van Oord at the Gemini Offshore Wind Farm, in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
The Clarimar MF seriesis manufactured entirely in the EU from high performance (corrosion resistant and lightweight) materials. The modular design affords simple installation and requires only one power connection. ACO Marine claims it has the lowest operation costs of any sewage treatment plant on the market.
The system is fully type-approved by Bureau Veritas to meet MEPC 227(64) and EC MED module B. It can reduce Coliform Bacteria to 25/100ml, TSS to <14mg/l, BOD to <3mg/l, and COD to <25mg/l.
