Reliance Defence and Engineering (RDEL) has awarded ACO Marine a contract to supply a wastewater management package for a new Indian Coast Guard training vessel currently under construction.
RDEL, which in January 2016 acquired Pipavav Defence & Offshore Engineering, awarded ACO Marine the contract through its Indian distributor, Vanson Engineering.
This is the first time Indian Coast Guard is using the ACO Sewage Treatment plant. Until now, ICG typically operated conventional chemical-based technologies.
Vanson Engineering will supply, install and commission two ACO Clarimar MF-4 biological treatment units and ACO PV 225 vacuum stations, after which system training will be given to ICG crews.
Fully type-approved to meet MEPC 227(64) and EC MED module B, the ACO Clarimar MF is a plug and play system manufactured using ACO Composite PPFR GREY, a durable polymer material. It combines ACO Marine’s extensively researched and developed ACO-MF filtration technology with the company’s new patented ACO ‘bio-sword’, a self-cleaning filtration element that effectively treats a ship’s wastewater to well below the mandatory levels.
