The PierPump disposal station from German company Vogelsang not only continues to prove itself in the marina sector but also helps drive the trend towards responsible boating. Gerard Schermer, marina manager at Stichting Yachthafens Wartena in the Netherlands, has found that if the wastewater station is simple to use, it will actually be used. “Since we installed PierPump, the use of the wastewater station at our marina has increased significantly,” he confirms. The self-service process is as easy as filling up at a petrol pump, and the station is both environmentally and user friendly. The boat owner pre-pays via card reader or coin counter and connects up via universal connections that are guaranteed to fit all types of vessel. If optional heating elements are incorporated, the pump even works smoothly at sub-zero temperatures. Various designs are available. The PierPump S160 collects wastewater quickly and effectively even if it contains foreign matter; PierPump SB160 also pumps out bilge water; and PierPump Easy offers marina operators an economical and basic option. Key features include a quality pump, a sensible footprint and casing material options: • The Vogelsang rotary lobe pump, which sits at the heart of all of the systems, has elastomer-coated lobes to make it resistant to dry-running and foreign bodies. It pumps the fluid and guides it directly into the marina’s sewer system. • Compact design requires only minimal space. The PierPump S160, for example, is 1m (3.4ft) high and requires a footprint of just 0.5m² (5.4ft²). • The PierPump’s stainless steel housing, available in V2A or with salt water-resistant C5-M coating, effectively resists the effects of weather. Additional optional features are available, such as a time-relay control for cycling the usage duration or an operating hours counter. The QuickService concept is another advantage; all worn parts can be replaced very quickly without removing the pump. And any help is always close to hand – via Vogelsang’s network of 25 subsidiaries and representative offices. 58 – January/February 2021
