East coast marina first to install environmental washdown

An East coast marina has become the first in the region to install a new environmental washdown facility to ensure oils, paint fragments and other materials are prevented from entering the water.

Fambridge Yacht Haven, located on the River Crouch in Essex, has installed two new state-of-the-art interceptor tanks at the top of their slipways. When boats are lifted ashore into the Yacht Haven’s boatyard and pressure washed, the run-off is collected within an Environmental Wash Centre where it is filtered with waste particles seperated. The water is the re-used to reduce water usage.

Danyal Adams, Marina Manager, commented, “As custodians, we’re responsible for maintaining and preserving our marinas, ensuring our coastal areas are future-proofed for generations to come. We’ve listened to what our customers and the marine industry are saying about making marina operations more sustainable, so we’re delighted to become the first marina on the East Coast to utilise this state-of-the-art system.”
