Norway’s Scanship Holding ASA has through its subsidiary Scanship AS entered into a contract with the Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for a total clean ship system delivery to the fourth Viking Ocean Cruises newbuilding.
The deliveries will include Scanship’s systems for Advanced Wastewater Purification (AWP) and Waste Management (WM). The AWP system treats all wastewater streams on a vessel in compliance with the strictest environmental regulations, and the vessel when delivered, will meet the new regulation for the Baltic Sea, as well as the regulation enforced in Alaska.
The Scanship Waste Management system processes all garbage and food waste, and bio residues from these waste streams and from the wastewater will be dried and incinerated aboard. Scanship will deliver the main equipment during 2015.
“This is the fourth total clean ship system we will be delivering to Fincantieri for the Viking Ocean Cruises. From next year on until 2017, these ocean-going liners will enter service with the most advanced systems to date for waste management and wastewater purification. We are excited to be aboard, and to set sail in the tradition of real Viking exploration. This time around the voyage will be in an environmental sustainable way,” said Henrik Badin, Scanship CEO.
