From 1971 to 1983 George Sharkins has served in various capacities contributing to numerous Navy shipboard environmental protection programs. Programs include the development of data bases, technical training, technical documentation and equipment related to wastewater processing.
Shipboard processes included vacuum collection and transport, chemical, thermal and electrolytic disinfection, screening and filtering, flocculation, sludge storage and handling, oil water separation, and liquid and solid waste incineration. Mr. Sharkins has been with ESI since its formation in 1984, serving as president until the recent acquisition by Allied Marine Services. In this capacity, he provided technical guidance in the design, assembly, operation, troubleshooting, maintenance and parts support for shipboard wastewater processing systems.
Additionally, Mr. Sharkins has managed more than 1,300 government contracts totaling over $10 million, providing spare parts in support of shipboard wastewater treatment systems. In most cases, met or exceeded all delivery and quality requirements earning ESI bronze (1995) and gold (2001, 2003, 2005, and 2006), and silver (2004 and 2005) "Best Value" medals from Navy Supply Centers in Richmond and Columbus, respectively. Since 1998, Mr. Sharkins has managed a NAVICP Mechanicsburg sponsored Basic Ordering Agreement for the rebuilding of more than 150 Navy shipboard wastewater pumps and other equipment. Based on the quality, cost effectiveness and timely delivery of items under this agreement, the contract was renewed in 2002 and continues to date.
