Two vessels to be built by Fincantieri for Princess Cruises will become the latest luxury cruise ships to feature Hamworthy’s Membrane BioReactor (MBR), the technology designed to meet wastewater discharge requirements in even the most sensitive of seas. Each 3,600 passenger capacity, 141,000gt ‘Ruby Evolution’ class ship will be fitted with two Hamworthy MBR24 systems, to enable responsible operations anywhere in the world. With the delivery date for the first vessel due in spring 2013, the first two MBRs will be delivered in August 2011, for installation/commissioning by December 2012. The second vessel is due to be delivered in spring 2014 with equipment delivery in May 2012 and installation/commissioning by December 2013. To date, Hamworthy has supplied over 100 MBR units to a range of new and existing cruise ships, ferries, offshore rigs, naval ships, and yachts since their introduction in 2000.
