AET is a global leader in petroleum shipping with a fleet of more than 80 vessels. The two Aframax tankers have been chartered for 20 years to Marine Well Containment Company of Houston, Texas.
“We are pleased to have been chosen to provide the Tidalwave HMX sewage treatment plant on the Eagle Texas and Eagle Louisiana, which will be deployed as oil spill response and well-containment vessels in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, ” said Mellinger. “The fact that our system was chosen for installation on these state-of-the-art vessels is testimony to the quality of our products and the reliability of our services. All of our waste treatment systems are certified for worldwide compliance under MARPOL.”
The TIDALWAVE HMX systems are USCG-certified and Bureau Veritas-approved to IMO MEPC 159(55) standards. They can process up to 50, 000 gallons (187 cubic meters) per day and use flocculants, chemical oxidation, hydro-maceration and patented crossflow separation techniques to destroy influent biomass. The six-stage process provides trouble-free treatment of black and gray water and a sterile effluent for disposal. The PLC controller allows treatment techniques to be customized after installation for varying hydraulic and organic loading conditions or to meet varying performance standards in different parts of the world.
