Fort Lauderdale, Fla- Total Marine Solutions, a leader in maritime environmental compliance solutions, is proud to represent Jets Vacuum’s Ecomotive™ Biological Sewage Treatment Plant, a newly USCG approved product with one of the smallest footprints on the market. Approved by the United States Coast Guard in May 2015, Ecomotive™ has been tested to meet and exceed existing and expected future IMO guidelines pertaining to sewage treatment.

“Vessel owners are forward thinking. Compliance with today’s standards is good, but compliance with future standards is better. We pride ourselves on representing technologies which not only meet customer needs today, but will meet future needs, and exceed standards and regulations,” said Alexandra Anagnostis-Irons, president of Total Marine Solutions.

“Ecomotive™ does that, which means it makes sense for vessel owners who are cost and environmentally conscious.”

Ecomotive™ is certified according to current International Maritime Organization regulations IMO.MEPC 159 (55) and is also tested according to the future requirements put forth in IMO 227(64). Ecomotive™ is designed as a flexible solution, with modular installation options, giving it one of the smallest footprints among biological sewage treatment products.

The Ecomotive™ plant’s volume and footprint sizes are only 60-70% in comparison with conventional biological treatment plants.

Since debuting on the international market in 2012, Ecomotive™ treatment plants have been installed on more than 192 vessels worldwide, a majority of which operate in the off-shore market. The recent USCG approval opens the product up to North American ship builders. Total Marine Solutions has already been contracted to install Ecomotive™ on off-shore vessels underway in the Gulf of Mexico.
