Mark Mellinger, Vice-President of Headhunter, Inc. announced the completion of the company’s Tidalwave HMX 6001 LP sewage treatment plant for two of the four 118-foot (36 meters), 70 passenger aluminum crew boats built by Cheoy Lee Shipyard. Cheoy Lee began its shipyard operations in 1870 in Shanghai, China. Today, the company has vessel construction facilities in Hong Kong and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“We are pleased to have supplied the Tidalwave HMX sewage system on the crew boats Swissco Cheetah and Swissco Puma, which have the ability to transport up to 70 passengers and ten crewmembers,” said Mellinger. “The installation of our waste treatment system for Cheoy Lee and Swissco Offshore is testimony to the quality of our products and the reliability of our services. All of our waste treatment systems are certified for worldwide compliance under MARPOL.”

The Tidal Wave HMX systems are USCG-certified and Bureau Veritas-approved to IMO MEPC 159(55) standards. They can process up to 10,000 gallons of effluent per day and use flocculants, chemical oxidation, hydro-maceration and patented crossflow separation techniques to destroy influent biomass. The six-stage process provides trouble-free treatment of black and gray water and a sterile effluent for disposal. The PLC controller allows treatment techniques to be customized after installation for varying hydraulic and organic loading conditions or to meet varying performance standards in different parts of the world.
