Wärtsilä Upgrades World’s Largest Homes on Water

The largest, private, residential ship on the seas, The World, operated by Fort Lauderdale-based ROW Management, Ltd., will be upgraded with a Wärtsilä Advanced Wastewater treatment system and a Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum system for navigation and external communication purposes.

The Wärtsilä Advanced Wastewater solution will replace an existing system and keep the vessel in full compliance with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) requirements concerning the prevention of pollution from ships.

The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in November, and the equipment is scheduled for delivery in April, 2016.

Wärtsilä Hamworthy Membrane BioReactor (MBR) solutions are designed to facilitate the management and treatment of both ‘grey’ and ‘black’ wastewater, and to monitor discharges to the sea. The Wärtsilä system treats black and grey water so that the effluent can meet the most stringent marine discharge standards across the globe, including the latest nutrients removal requirements in the Baltic Sea.

Featuring a length of 196.35 metre, the vessel comprises 165 individual homes that are owned by the residents, who together own the ship.
