RWO GmbH, manufacturer of water treatment plants in the maritime sector, said the Bremen-based company increased orders received in its core business by 32% in the first four months of 2014 compared to the same period last year.
The business sector encompasses oil separators, wastewater treatment plants in various sizes, emulsion separators, softeners and other systems for treating water on board.
“RWO’s results in the first months show clearly that focusing on quality becomes prevalent in the industry. Major European shipping companies trust the products of RWO, and our oily water separators are now installed on board more than 14,000 ships,” commented Andreas Rosebrock, the company’s new Sales Director, on the success. “The RWO systems above all convince ship owners by their lasting reliability,” he said. Decisively in favor of the oil separators are also excellent treatment results, whose values are far below the prescribed 15 ppm limit. Even also for the frequently required 5 ppm, no additional systems must be employed upstream or downstream.
The figures now available for the core business cover the product lines of oily water separators, wastewater treatment plants, drinking water treatment and spare parts, RWO said, adding that incoming orders in the pure plant business were in fact increased by 68% compared to the previous year.
