Headworks Bio Inc. Contract for Allure of the Seas

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Headworks Bio Inc. announced the signing of a contract with STX Europe in Turku, Finland, for the completion and commissioning of a wastewater treatment system for the Allure of the Seas cruise ship.  The Allure of the Seas will be delivered to its owner, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, at the end of this year. Using innovative moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) and Return Activated Sludge technologies, the system is another step forward in the trend towards advanced onboard wastewater treatment and water reuse. 

Allure of the Seas is the sister ship to the Oasis of the Seas, also built by STX Europe for Royal Caribbean International.  It will have capacity for 5,400 guests onboard in 2,700 staterooms with a crew contingent of 2,160 members.  All wastewater, including black, accommodation grey, galley grey, food waste, and laundry grey water generated onboard will be treated to a higher quality than the Alaska State Discharge Standards, currently the most stringent in the world.  The maiden voyage of this technologically advanced ship is scheduled for late October of 2010 and all systems will be functional and ready for passengers prior to launch.  The inaugural passenger cruise is set for December 2010 out of its home port in Ft. Lauderdale.
