BATSECO-BOAT: An upgrade in the sewage collecting service in the Central Baltic region

In the last three years BATSECO-Boat has worked for a cleaner Baltic sea.

BATSECO-BOAT (Best Available Technology of SEwage COllecting technologies for BOAT tourism) resulted in a total of 11 new pump-out stations in Sweden, Finland and Estonia and 9 renewed stations in the Finnish archipelago. The new pump-out stations were distributed in this way: 2 in Sweden, 4 in Estonia and 5 in Finland. The purchasing process has been supported by the investigations conducted under the implementation WP. These included policy and economic analyses, technological assessment, a traffic flow model and chemical analyses of boats wastewater.

UCV-Campus Roslagen has conducted the investigation of existing and innovative technical solutions and Norrtälje municipality has bought two new floating stations in the ports of Ellan and Stora Högskär.

The project team presented the results in a final event organized online on the 17th of February. In this post we publish the presentations from the day.
