Wärtsilä Hamworthy’s MBR system

Wärtsilä Hamworthy has won a contract from Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani S.p.A. to supply two Membrane BioReactors (MBRs) to the 141,000gt newbuilding under construction for Carnival group member P&O Cruises.

Kevin Robertson, sales director, Wärtsilä Water Systems, said: “Carnival group is once again showing confidence in the ability of Hamworthy’s advanced wastewater treatment technology to meet increasing environmental legislative requirements.”

Hamworthy has delivered more than 25 MBR advanced wastewater systems to the world’s largest cruise ship operator, Carnival. The company’s MBR system produces the highest quality discharge without requiring any addition or generation of chemicals that are hazardous to the environment or vessel operation.

Hamworthy’s MBR technology is an advanced wastewater treatment process based on biological degradation and membrane separation –an evolution of the company’s proven sewage treatment technology for handling grey and black water waste.

The contract also includes reponsibility for UV polishing.

The 3,611 passenger capacity vessel is set to enter service in March 2015. It will be the largest to be constructed for the British market and the order includes an option for a second vessel.
