Through its subsidiary company Scanship, Vow ASA has been awarded a €5.7 mill contract with a major European shipyard for the delivery of two advanced wastewater purification systems.
The systems will be installed on two undisclosed cruise ships due to enter service in 2024 and 2026.
They will be operated under a European brand. Scanship had previously supplied six cruise ships from the same operator.
Scanship’s systems will purify all wastewater generated from 6,500 people on board to the highest international discharge regulations, in line with newly enforced Baltic Sea standard and according to continuous Alaskan water discharge requirements.
The contract includes a €5.7 mill option to supply systems for two additional vessels.
“The cruise industry is undergoing its most disruptive period in history, still with 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,” said Vow CEO, Henrik Badin.
