CRUISE LINES EMBRACE IMO MEPC.227(64) 4.2 STANDARD

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

The HL-CONT PLUS OCEANCRUISE is certified to IMO Resolution MEPC.227 (64) incl. 4.2 Special Areas and complies with the USCG requirements for Alaska certification.

In addition to the proven HAMANN dissolved air flotation technology (DAF), the new plant series uses two moving bed bioreactors (MBBR). Each system consists of four compact and lightweight modules that can be installed separately, even on different decks. Existing tanks on board the vessel may be converted to function as MBBR modules, saving additional space. With the HL-CONT Plus OceanCruise, HAMANN AG offers a highly customizable solution for both new builds and retrofitting.
The system requires minimal maintenance from the crew, especially by eliminating filters and membranes.
