APRIL 6, 2016 — Evac has received a cruise ship order worth an initial EUR 10 million from an undisclosed client. The contract is for Evac Complete Cleantech Solutions covering the integrated waste and wastewater management systems for three large-scale cruise vessels with an option to outfit an additional ship.
The Evac product package for each of the three cruise vessels includes an Evac MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor) wastewater treatment plant, enabling vessels to operate without any limitations. The Evac MBBRs 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 Evac Complete Cleantech Solution 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 2,300 vacuum toilets per vessel.
The first of the three vessels has a scheduled delivery for 2018, with the last vessel slotted for 2021.
