Norwegian clean technology provider Vow ASA has been awarded a €5.7M (US$6.8M) contract, through its subsidiary company Scanship, with an unnamed major European shipyard to deliver two advanced wastewater purification systems
Scanship systems will be installed on two cruise ships due to enter service in 2024 and 2026. The vessels will be operated under a European brand in joint venture with a large Miami-based cruise ship company. Scanship has previously equipped six cruise ships under the same European brand.
In a statement, Scanship chief executive Henrik Badin said “The cruise industry is undergoing its most disruptive period in history, with a focus on post-pandemic growth by maintaining its large newbuild programmes. We are both thrilled and humbled by this new contract, as it demonstrates industry ambitions and signals continuous commitment for sustainable operations to protect our oceans.”
The wastewater system to be delivered by Scanship will purify all wastewater generated from the 6,500 people on board to the highest international discharge regulations, in line with Baltic sea standards and Alaskan water discharge requirements. The contract includes an option for two additional vessels.
