Attica Group ferries to be fitted with Wave bilge filter systems

Wave International

The three Aero ferries represent an investment of €21 million by Attica Group

Attica Group is to fit its new Aero 1 high-speed catamarans with Wave International’s MiniBoss oily water bilge filter systems.

The Wave MiniBoss system controls and prevents the discharge of oily bilge water using Wavestream System 3 filters. The system is lightweight enough to be installed on high-speed ferries and catamarans such as Aero 1, and was supplied to Attica Group by Norwegian-based environmental consultancy Yarconsult AS.

The Aero 1 high-speed catamarans will be 36 metres long and 9.7 metres wide, and able to maintain a maximum speed of 32 knots. Passenger accommodation areas feature large windows and provision for guests with reduced mobility, as well as a dedicated area for bicycles.

The three Aero ferries represent an investment of €21 million and will operate between the Greek Saronic Islands. The vessels have been built at the Brødrene Aa Shipyard in Norway and feature a light carbon fibre glass construction that reduces fuel consumption and emissions.
