CLEAN WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PierPump – Trouble-free disposal of waste and bilge water from boats and yachts. When installing a wastewater management system harbor operators have to make several decisions depending on the location, number of berths and size to find the optimal system. The Vogelsang PierPump is a customer-oriented high-performance solution, which is easy to operate and allows bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is resistant to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to stop if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue. VOGELSANG LEADING IN TECHNOLOGY

Councillors want a Priority Development Area (PDA) to be declared so as to fast-track the project. The development will boost jobs in the construction sector, help meet an ongoing need for more housing and, in the longer term, diversify industry and tourism. The creation of new specialised marine business services for the region, such as boatbuilding, maintenance and repairs is part of the plan. “Approving a PDA would support the construction and development sector by stimulating new marine tourism, retail, commercial and residential development as well as significant community infrastructure,” said Councillor Mark Booth. “I’m also incredibly buoyed by the developer’s proposal for 319ha [788.3 acres] of open space along a 12km [7.5mi] stretch of the Caboolture River, which has been in private ownership for over 160 years.” North Harbour would include a new 400-berth mixed use marina, 600 apartments and 600 detached homes as part of the marina village, and another 800 dwellings on a canal estate.
