Vow ASA ('Vow') has through its subsidiary Scanship AS been awarded a retrofit contract with Carnival Cruise Line to deliver its advanced wastewater purification (AWP) system to Carnival Dream. The system will be installed aboard the vessel during a scheduled drydock in 2021.
'This contract signals a strong commitment for environmental sustainability even in most disruptive times, and we are thrilled to continue our work with Carnival Cruise Line deploying Scanship AWP technology to meet the highest discharge standard at sea,' said CEO Henrik Badin.
For Scanship, this will be the thirty first (31) AWP system installed on existing ships in operation, and one of the largest retrofit projects within this business area for the company to date. Scanship is currently also working on another AWP retrofit project for Carnival Cruise Line on the Carnival Magic, under a contract announced in September last year.
'We are impressed with the cruise industry's commitment and determination to meet the environmental requirements of tomorrow, by upgrading systems on existing ships and installing new clean ship solutions on newbuilds under construction', said Badin.
