Sanitary building kick starts floating building range
Poralu Marine has boosted its offerings in the waterfront development sector by launching a floating sanitary facility as the first concept in a new range of floating buildings.The facilities aim to improve comfort for boaters while also protecting the marine environment. Buildings can be accessed landside or waterside; preserve water quality; enhance services and improve marina image; and free up land space for other purposes.
Poralu Marine has drawn on its 40 years of experience with floating solutions to make an innovative turnkey offering that is economic, sustainable, secure, stable and customisable. The solutions include access, anchoring structures, the building and its platform, as well as water and power connections. The arrangement has been approved by an independent naval design office, and interior design, equipment, cladding and accessories are customised.
The major challenge with this kind of infrastructure is wastewater treatment. To preserve site water quality, two options are offered: pump-out or tank storage. Other solutions can be discussed.
