The need for consultation before and product support after the purchase of equipment is met by the AQUAMARINE staff and by a worldwide distribution system. Parts requirements and service enquiries are processed promptly. The AQUAMARINE principle of thorough service for its quality products is strictly maintained to provide the user with all necessary backup for successful operation.AQUAMARINE solves problems:
Infested water caused by the proliferation of aquatic vegetation throughout the world.
Mechanical control to combat the explosive growth of aquatic plants such as water hyacinth, hydrilla and Eurasian milfoil.
is widespread public concern about the use of herbicides and their residual effects.
Aquatic plant harvesting – the environmentally safe and economical alternative.
Locating the best available, reliable aquatic plant harvesting technology and making the correct choice of equipment.
AQUAMARINE – the leading company in the design and development of Aquatic Harvesting Systems. AQUAMARINE is a worldwide supplier of aquatic harvesting equipment.
Since its founding in 1966, the basic aim of AQUAMARINE has been to tackle the problems of aquatic plant control with new concepts, new technology, and practical scientifically-based innovations in the design and manufacture of its equipment.
As a result, AQUAMARINE has an international reputation, not only for pioneering the concept, but for continuing to improve and expand it through research and development, through design and engineering, through modern production technology and through after-sales service anywhere around the world.
The uncontrolled supply of nutrients to those naturally present in the water column has created explosive growth among such aquatic plants as water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillate) and the Eurasian water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), not only in tropical and sub-tropical areas, but in temperate areas as well.
The design engineering team at AQUAMARINE is continually upgrading and improving it’s equipment to deal with this problem with increased economy and productivity. Harvesting aquatic plants significantly improves water quality and its enjoyment.
While aquatic plants have always existed as a necessary and desirable part of clean and usable water, the continuing and almost universal use of phosphate-based fertilizers and household detergents has created explosive aquatic plant growth by adding significantly to naturally occurring nutrient levels in the water column. Because of widespread public concern about the use of herbicides to control aquatic plants, mechanical harvesting has now achieved wide acceptance as a preferred alternative to chemical control.
It is environmentally safe and economical, it adds nothing to the water column and, by removing nutrient-absorbing plants, it reduces and controls nutrient build-up in the bottom sediment.
As a world-recognized forerunner in Aquatic Plant Harvesting Technology, AQUAMARINE offers the best solution to aquatic plant control. The mechanical harvesting of aquatic plants has no lingering or residual damaging effects and removes from the water both the unwanted plants and the nutrients that encourage their growth. Furthermore, it allows for the use of the water immediately after harvesting and has no potential long-term consequences on the ecosystem.
Mechanical harvesting improves property values and the use of recreational water, opens up navigation in plant choked waters and increases the flow of irrigation and drainage water. It improves both sport and commercial fishing, aids in flood control, and preserves and protects the world’s potable water supplies.
