Centralised sewage system for boats and buildings A new low cost concept for handling black water, introduced by Flow Vacuum of Barcelona, Spain, is becoming a popular choice at marinas in Europe and beyond. Named Flovac, the system receives sewage from marina buildings and all pumped out waste – including bilge water – from boats. All collection points merely require a vacuum valve – no power supply, no level sensors and no costly devices. Extra or multiple points can be installed as and where required. The system has a small carbon footprint, with all pipework buried in narrow, shallow trenches to reduce any environmental risks. Sewage spills cannot occur, as the pipework operates under negative pressure, and there is no odour; an important consideration when positioning close to restaurants. Boat owners use an easy coupling attached to a flexible hose to plug the vessel sewage holding tank into the Freestand lift for bigger boats Freestanding boat lifts used to be synonymous with lake houses and runabouts but the hydraulic Tornado from Golden Boat Lifts is an adaptation for use in saltwater for vessels up to 45ft (14m) and 32,000lbs (14,515kg). It is ideal for owners who cannot install a permanent solution or prefer the option to move the equipment seasonally or from place to place. The Tornado boat lift comes in ten capacities but each lift utilises Golden’s multi bunk system so can be customised to adapt to any specific vessel, whether it is a deep-V, stepped or multi-hull. With up to 6ft (2m) of rise, it can also accommodate fin keel sailboats. Tornados are built in the USA from fully welded marine aluminium and oversized stainless steel components. This is vitally important for a lift that will regularly be moved. Hydraulic cylinders are protected by unique air bellows for trouble-free service. PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE system. Operation is either manual or via an automatic on/off switch, which can be timer controlled, coin or card operated or remotely controlled. Larger boats can pump out into a collection pit fitted with a Flovac valve. Safe operation is ensured as the valve/hose operation is pneumatic and no electric power is required on the dock, and all facilities can be hidden under the docks or enclosed in pedestals. The vacuum pump station, which generates the negative pressure through the system, can be discretely located within the marina complex. All wastewater is then discharged to the local council sewer or treatment plant. Flovac has already been installed in Each lift has a long-range wireless remote that raises and lowers it, and power is derived from an integrated 12V DC pump with solar panel.
