JANUARY 21, 2015—Evac Group has received an order to supply total waste management systems for four large cruise ships—the largest biggest cruise vessel contract in the company’s history. Evac Group says the order for an undisclosed customer includes an option to outfit an additional six vessels. The initial four-vessel contract is valued at about 30 million EURO.
In addition, Evac Group has secured many large navy, coast guard, and offshore orders during the last quarter, increasing the company’s backlog value with 50% as compared with last year.
The Evac product package for each of the four cruise vessels includes an Evac Cleansea wastewater treatment plant enabling vessels to operate without any limitations. The Evac Cleansea plants allow vessels to be operated in many Environmentally Sensitive Sea Areas (ESSAs) and Special Areas (SAs) defined nationally or internationally, where special discharge restrictions apply.
The contract also includes dry and wet waste treatment systems including an incinerator and recycling equipment covering glass plastic, paper, cardboard and aluminum waste, food waste vacuum systems, a bio sludge treatment unit, plus vacuum collecting systems including six vacuum units and approximately 3,000 vacuum toilets per vessel.
The first of the four vessels has a scheduled delivery in 2018 with the last vessel slotted for 2022.
Evac CEO Tomi Gardemeister, estimates turnover for 2015 was 98 million EURO and strong growth is anticipated during coming years.
