Tidal Wave HMX sewage treatment plants

Headhunter, specialists in plumbing and sanitation for luxury yachts and commercial vessels, has received Coast Guard approval for new models in its line of Tidal Wave HMX sewage treatment plants, according to company vice president Mark Mellinger.


The company, based in Fort Lauderdale, made several improvements to the systems to meet the new more-stringent United Nations International Maritime Organization standards. "There is secondary filtration added ... and there are changes in the way we use the [yacht 's] holding tank to enhance precipitation," says Mellinger. "Captains and owners can rest assured that when equipped with Headhunter sewage treatment plants their vessel will meet the most critical of surveys." Yachts of more than 400 gross tons must meet the new standards, but Tidal Wave systems can be installed in vessels under that weight because of their small size and light weight, says Mellinger. Prices for the Tidal Wave plants, which are offered in various sizes, certifications and construction materials, start at $50,000, says Mellinger. Contact: Headhunter Inc., (954) 581-6996.
