Environmental issues

We're putting a lot of thought in making sure this an environmentally friendly vessel to operate. Some examples are using vacuum toilet systems like those of Jets in Norway, which uses less than 1 liter of normal water to flush.

All waste water will go through a biological sewage treatment plant, the BioCompact, developed in the Netherlands.

Our gen set configuration will be such that their engines will run between 70-100% of their maximum power, avoiding air pollution. Oily bilge waters will also be cleaned by a centrifugal separator system. By using modern materials to isolate the ship, our energy needs will be lower.
