Envirovac Receives Contract To Equip Twelve U.S.C.G. Cutters

Envirovac Systems, Rockford, 111., was recently awarded an initial contract to begin the renovation of toilet systems on 12 high-endurance cutters as part of a major rehabilitation and modernization project by the U.S. Coast Guard. Todd Pacific Shipyards Corporation, Seattle, Wash., who will handle eight of the cutters on the West Coast, and Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine, who will handle four cutters on the East Coast, are both involved in the project.

At present, five of the 12 vessels are equipped with the Envirovac vacuum toilet system. On the ships now containing Envirovac equipment, the toilet system will be upgraded; mechanical equipment will be refurbished, 30 toilets will be replaced and 10 toilets added, and the control system modified to include two new features. On those ships containing other equipment, the toilet system will be redesigned according to Envirovac specifications and replaced with Envirovac equipment.

The work is scheduled to begin this month and extend over a period of three years.
