EPE YACHTING, a leading supplier of sustainable services and solutions for superyachts, has received certification from DNV to confirm that its TRITON FIT sewage treatment plant (STP) fully complies with IMO Resolution MEPC 227(64).
Part of MARPOL Annex IV for the Prevention of Pollution by Sewage from Ships, IMO/MEPC 227(64) sets out the guidelines for implementation of effluent standards and performance tests for sewage treatment plants onboard yachts.
During the certification process, DNV undertook the relevant procedures for the product type to confirm compliance with IMO/MEPC 227(64). In addition to issuing a Type Approval Certificate, DNV also issued an EC Type Examination Certificate confirming the successful completion of the design assessment and testing.
Designed specifically for use on superyachts, TRITON FIT is the smallest fully compliant sewage treatment plant on the market making it the ideal solution for both newbuild and retrofit projects. TRITON FIT is a physicochemical system that utilises a coagulant chemical and buffer tank to ensure the highest effluent standards are routinely achieved. The process can be fully automated and features an integrated washing system to prevent fouling of sensors, valves and outlets.
Dimitris Avdelopoulos, EPE YACHTING Director, said: ”I am delighted to announce that TRITON FIT has successfully completed this certification process with DNV. With pressure growing on yacht owners and managers to invest in sustainable solutions, TRITON FIT provides peace of mind that the sewage system is operating to the highest standards and in line with environmental regulations.
“The EPE YACHTING team has designed an excellent system that supports our mission to support meaningful environmental operations, and this certification provides assurance that TRITON FIT not only complies with IMO standards for sewage treatment and discharge, but that it was tested under the strictest processes and procedures.”
