Double sanitation system in Sitges

Flovac has installed a double sanitation system in Port d’Aiguadolē in Sitges, Spain, a 742-berth marina on the Mediterranean that is about a 30 minute drive from Barcelona.

The dual system collects wastewater (aside from rainwater) via two independent stations dividing wastewater from the marina and the fishing village. This makes sampling easier before water is released to the public sewer. Hydrocarbon and bilge water in the nautical system is collected and concentrated at a point close to its origin so as to carry out separation of the polluting load.
In order to serve the seaside town, the double network has around 1,800m (5,900ft) of main line piping. The town has around 170 apartments, a 50-room hotel and about 17 restaurants. The vacuum network, as always, is designed above the existing water table and will be completely sealed.
By investing in the system, the concession holders Port d’Aiguadolē-Sitges SA, which has operated the marina since 1972, has reaffirmed its commitment to protecting and respecting the environment in a protected area that is particularly popular for sailing regattas and canoeing.
