After a long process of delays due to Covid and challenges with equipment deliveries, the sewage system for ships and buildings at Skolten, Bontelabo, and Festningskaien is finally ready for use.
The facility will receive greywater, which includes wastewater from sinks, showers, and washing machines, as well as sewage from toilets. This will then flow into the municipal sewer system. It is designed for automatic reception and will be used by all vessels according to an agreement.
The cost of the facility is approximately 17 million Norwegian kroner.
