Under an agreement signed December 7, 2016, Evac will supply Complete Cleantech Solutions for two Global class cruise ships for Genting Hong Kong’s Star Lines.
The two 201,000-gross-ton vessels will be built by the German shipyard MV Werften for deliveries in 2020 and 2021. The contract gives Genting an option on two additional Global class vessels. The Genting vessels will carry Evac’s Complete Cleantech Solution, which includes vacuum collection, vacuum toilets, wastewater treatment, dry- and wet waste treatment, and freshwater generation by reverse osmosis systems for technical water quality with a daily capacity of over 3,000 cubic meters. “Evac’s Complete Cleantech Solution noticeably simplifies implementation and coordination in the building process of the yard. And while under construction, Evac’s two offices in North Germany mean problems can be solved quickly” says Ljubo Jurisevic, Managing Director of Evac Germany and President of Evac Global Cruise Business. “The added value of Evac’s complete solution is that its integrated solutions reduce interfaces and thus risks for the shipyard and ship owner,” continues Jurisevic. Over the next five years Genting will turn to MV Werften to build nine ships for its three brands, Star Cruises, Dream Cruises, and Crystal Cruises, demonstrating Genting’s commitment to the long-term development of the cruise industry in Asia. “This is great for Germany and the MW Werften shipyards,” says Jurisevic. “There are now more competitors outside the big three players to serve this growing cruise market.”
