Scanship is to provide wastewater purification systems for Norwegian Cruise Line for the next two years, confirming their long-term cooperation for cleaner oceans.
It has been 15 years since Scanship installed the first Advanced Water Purification (AWP) systems on Norwegian Cruise Line ships.
“We are very pleased to reinforce the technical cooperation with Scanship as a testament to our longstanding partnership and our commitment to the environment,” said Paolo Mele, SVP technical operations at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Since 2002 Scanship has retrofitted 11 Norwegian Cruise Lines ships with advanced wastewater treatment systems. From 2004, six newbuilds have been equipped with Scanship’s total clean ships systems including waste handling, food waste processing and bio residue treatment.
From 2010, the Norwegian Cruise Line newbuilds in the Breakaway and Breakaway Plus class have been deployed with Scanship wastewater purification systems in compliance with the new IMO Marpol standard for special areas removing phosphorus and nitrogen.
In total, 17 cruise ships are operating Scanship systems in the fleets of Norwegian Cruise Line Holding, 15 ships for Norwegian Cruise Line, one ship for Oceania Cruises and one ship of Regent Seven Seas.
“The two-year fleet-wide service agreement with Scanship includes preventive maintenance service visits, system tuning and remote monitoring for the most cost-efficient operations,” said Olivier Buton, vice president marine and technical supply chain management at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
“Under the two-year agreement we will work with Norwegian Cruise Line to secure efficient and compliant operations by effectual provisions of service, parts, and consumables,” said Bettina Nowak, managing director of Scanship Americas.
