INTERFERRY, the international association of ferry operators, holds its annual conference from October 05-09 in London, GB. We are proud sponsors of this event and will be present with a booth on site. We are looking forward to a high profile program and meetings with many of the 400+ delegates from all over the world.
Australis Expeditions trusts in HAMANN sewage and wastewater management systems for its vessels STELLA AUSTRALIS and VENTUS AUSTRALIS. Both cruise ships operate in the fjords and channels of Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia. The luxury expedition cruise company takes protecting the enviromnment very serious and has chosen us to supply the sewage treatment technology for their vessels. Read their environmental protection policy here: https://www.australis.com/site/en/why-australis/social-and-environmental-responsibility/
Both vessels have been built by ASENAV in Valdivia, Chile. Here are some key facts on the ships:
Year of construction: 2017
Capacity: 200 Guests
Year of construction: 2010
Capacity: 200 Guests
The sewage and wastewater management systems on board the vessels are designed to treat black water from toilets and grey water from showers, washbasins, kitchen sinks and laundries, and can process a peak of 24.000 litres of wastewater per day. HAMANN HL-CONT PLUS 10 sewage and wastewater treatment plants with IMO MEPC.227(64) and USCG Type 2 (33 CFR 159) certification are used as a basis. The HAMANN DISSOLVED AIR FLOTATION (DAF) technology used in these plants does not require any filters or membranes, making the plants particularly low-maintenance and reliable.
Brittany Ferries relies on HAMANN technology for sewage treatment on board their new LNG-powered “HONFLEUR”, currently nearing completion at Flensburger Schiffbaugesellschaft. Two HL-CONT Plus 40 sewage treatment plants provide a total treatment capacity of 8.000 litres per hour on board the 42.400 gt vessel that can carry 1,680 passengers and has a vehicle capacity of 2.600 lane meters.

According to a CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) survey, 83% of all CLIA member newbuilds will be fitted with sewage treatment systems meeting the highest standards under MEPC.227 (64) Section 4.2 for operation in MARPOL Annex IV Special Areas. At the present time, only the Baltic Sea is a special area according to MARPOL Annex IV. The fact that the vast majority of newbuilds are equipped with sewage treatment systems of this category shows the growing efforts of the cruise industry to reduce their negative impact on the environment.
HAMANN AG offers solutions for cruise ships of all sizes, from the stand-alone retrofit plant to complete sewage systems. All systems are based on our HL-CONT Plus OceanCruise sewage treatment plants certified to IMO MEPC.227.(64) Section 4.2. for all areas of operation including the Baltic Sea and Alaska. These systems combine HAMANN’s proven Dissolved Air Flotation technology (DAF) with Moving Bed Bioreactors (MBBR).
The advantages at a glance:
- Modular design for small footprint and flexible installation
- Scalability through the combination of multiple modules
- Redundancy for maximum reliability
- Low maintenance and easy operation
