Briefing

ACO Marine was tasked with the engineering, design, manufacturing and delivery of the advanced wastewater treatment system. The system consists of a black and grey water collection system, transfer system and final wastewater treatment unit. All systems had to be delivered to the most demanding of standards expected in the yacht building industry with the latest technical and design innovations. Performance and reliability as always was a pre-requisite as these vessels often operate in environmentally sensitive of areas Vessel description An exclusive 96 metre superyacht built to the highest possible finish standard.  The name, owner and shipbuilder are subject to non-disclosure. The challenge set to ACO Marine was extremely demanding in terms of performance, absolute reliability and footprint size.

Total requested capacity was 22 m3 per day with full 100% treatment redundancy. Delivered solution Two off ACO Maripur 100 MBR units each complete with dedicated black water vacuum system mounted directly to the Maripurs. To minimise the maintenance space envelope units were built ‘mirrored so that all maintenance space could accessed from the central walkway in the compartment and at the fronts of the units.  

Additional system components included:

  • One Grey Water transfer module
  • One remote Grey Water vacuum transfer system for crew shower and laundry area
  • ACO Pipe stainless steel push-fit pipe system
