Norwegian marine technology firm Scanship has secured a contract from French shipyard Chantiers de l’Atlantique to supply clean tech systems for its cruise ships.
According to the agreement, Scanship will provide its marine solution for four cruise vessels, which are being built at the shipyard in Saint Nazaire.
The multi-ship contract includes the delivery of advanced wastewater purification systems to the fourth ship in the RCCL Oasis class of vessels, food waste treatment and a complete supply of advanced wastewater purification systems.
The Norwegian company will supply garbage handling and sludge processing for the fifth vessel in the MSC Meraviglia Plus class and for the third and fourth vessels in the Celebrity Edge class of ships.
Celebrity Cruises vessels will enter service in 2021 and 2022, while the RCCL and MSC cruises are scheduled to be commissioned in 2023.
Scanship will also deliver some additional equipment to the Celebrity Edge vessel in operation and to the Celebrity Apex vessel that will enter service in 2020.
Chantiers de l’Atlantique said that the contract includes options for system deliveries to the fifth vessel in the Celebrity class and to the fifth vessel in the RCCL Oasis class, which are scheduled to be commissioned in 2024 and 2025.
Scanship CEO Henrik Badin said: “We are very pleased with these contract awards and thrilled also to enter into the Celebrity Edge class of vessels that previously was not addressable for us.
“It is truly a recognition of successful long-term cooperation between Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Scanship supported by shipowners pushing for proven technology to enhance their environmental sustainability standards.”
Scanship Group and subsidiary Etia Etia had combined annual revenues of NOK430m ($46.84m) last year. They have 120 employees working in Norway, Poland, France and the US.
