ACO Marine, part of German ACO Group, has unveiled a new Clarimar MF wastewater management system for yachts operating with no more than 12 passengers.

Using the same technology applied to the larger models used in the commercial, offshore and military sectors, the new Clarimar MF (LY3) is designed specifically to meet the requirements of yachts built to comply with the Large Commercial Yacht (LY3) Code, the company said.

The LY3 Code applies to yachts which are 24m and over in load line length, are in commercial use for sport or pleasure, but do not carry cargo or more than 12 passengers.

“Many technologies currently in use on these yachts typically depend on dilution and chemical sterilisation to achieve effluent standards. The introduction of the biological-type Clarimar MF (LY3) means all segments of the global yacht sector now have access to a more effective and reliable wastewater treatment process,” Mark Beavis, ACO Marine Managing Director, said.

As explained, the system applies to yachts where compliance with Section 4.2 of the revised IMO MEPC 227 (64) rules relating to nitrogen and phosphorous removal is not required.

“A biological treatment system is fast becoming the industry standard for the 50m plus yacht and recognised as a viable and practical alternative to physical/chemical and dilution technologies,” Beavis added.
