Meyer Werft order for Hatenboer water treatment

Hatenboer-Water has been commissioned to supply water treatment equipment for two new cruise vessels currently under construction by Meyer Werft in Germany.

The equipment conditions fresh water derived from in-port bunkering or seawater desalination. Once stored, fresh water is post-treated in two stages: hardening by neutralising filters and disinfection with a chlorine product. If required, acidity is adjusted. Bunkered fresh water is disinfected at intake.

From the storage tanks, fresh water is pumped into distribution systems and subsequently undergoes another cycle of disinfection and possible acidity adjustment. Chlorine content is continuously monitored by a remote point analyser in the distribution systems.

In addition to drinking water, several other water streams (such as technical water and air conditioning drain water) are treated. The complete fresh water treatment system complies with US Public Health guidelines.

The delivery comprises two re-hardening/neutralising filters with CO2 gas dosing as well as several dosing skids with all necessary dosing, measuring and control devices. Requisite safety measures for personnel are included. Meyer Werft will install the equipment, after which Hatenboer-Water will carry out commissioning at the yard and during sea trial.

In 2015 Saga Cruises placed an order with Meyer Werft for the delivery of a new cruise vessel, Spirit of Discovery. It is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2019. The order also includes an option for a second ship, scheduled to be finalised in 2021. The 55,900gt vessel will have an overall length of 234 metres, accommodating nearly 1,000 passengers.
