ACO Marine Retrofitted Three Jadrolinija’s Ferries With Wastewater Treatment Units
The three 87.6m vessels were each retrofitted with a Clarimar MF-2 biological-type sewage treatment plant at the Dalmont shipyard in Kraljevica, Croatia.
Italy’s La Fornitrice, ACO Marine’s engineering partner in the region, completed the commissioning of the system aboard CRES, the final ship in the series.
Prior to the installation and commissioning of the Clarimar units, the 600-passenger capacity ferries did not treat wastewater streams but instead collected the effluent in holding tanks. In the busy summer months, this meant that the tanks needed emptying on a daily basis.
