Triverus Ships First Production Aircraft  Carrier Cleaning Machine

  Published: 

Palmer manufacturing company Triverus LLC has completed its first of four MCCRS (Mobile Reclaim Recycle System) for the US Navy. The machine uses patented technology to restore the necessary friction on flight deck surfaces and dramatically reduce pollution runoff into the ocean.

President/CEO Hans Vogel stated “Our team has worked with the Navy for 10 years in the R&D phase to meet all specifications and create a state of the art hard surface cleaning machine built right here in Palmer Alaska”

The Navy’s long-term plan is for Triverus to build up to 40 machines over the next 6 years, all of which will be made in Palmer according to Vogel.

Triverus also has a second manufacturing plant in Burlington, Vt. where they make the MCV (Municipal Cleaning Vehicle) a smaller machine tailored for storm water pollution prevention and high efficiency cleaning of parking facilities, airports and industrial applications. Minneapolis International Airport has five MCVs just for cleaning their parking garage.

Eric McCallum, an investor and partner in Triverus points out “ It’s a critical time to show Alaska can export technology and manufacturing, not just natural resources.
