ACO Marine has won an order to supply its new range Clarimar MF waste water treatment system for installation aboard Acta Orion, the state-of-the-art wind farm support vessel (WFSV) under construction for Acta Marine at the Partner Stocznia shipyard in Police, Poland.
Acta Orion will be the first reference for ACO Marine’s next generation sewage treatment plant, which has been specifically developed to meet IMO Resolution MEPC 227(64) without using chemicals or chlorine in the treatment process.
ACO Marine Managing Director Mark Beavis said: “We are delighted to be involved in this prestigious project with partners Acta Marine, CIG andPartner Stocznia, especially since the new Clarimar range was developed with the offshore sector very much in mind.
“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 totreat up to 37 800 litres of waste water per day.”
When delivered later this year, the 108m long, 16m wide DP2 vessel, designed by CIG, will be the largest ship in the Acta Marine fleet. 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 series is the ideal waste water solution for North Sea operations, ” said Beavis. “It is manufactured entirely in the EU from high performance materials which, unlike coated black steel, is completely corrosion resistant and light weight, the system’s modular design affords simple installation and requires only one power connection. From an operational perspective it is has the lowest running costs of any sewage treatment plant on the market.”
Fully type-approved by Bureau Veritas to meet MEPC 227(64) and EC MED module B, the ACO Clarimar MF can reduce Coliform Bacteria to 25/100ml, TSS to <14mg/l, BOD to <3mg/l, and COD to <25mg/l.
