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
HAMANN AG has donated a HL-CONT PLUS sewage treatment plant to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in support of their efforts to protect our marine environment. The plant has been installed on MY Bob Barker, a former whale catcher built in Norway.
Brian Race, Fleet Technical Superintendent at Sea Shepherd Global: “Sea Shepherd is delighted to be able to fit a HAMANN sewage treatment plant on another one of our vessels. After being tested and proven a success on the MY Ocean Warrior the MY Bob Barker is a proud new owner of this high quality, low maintenance and hassle free unit. Sea Shepherd has always done its best to minimize our impact on the worlds oceans we fight to protect, and with this added unit we excite to continue our high standard. HAMANN has provided us excellent technical assistance for our other unit and we are proud to gain their added support with this new unit.”

The green conscience is one reason for using high quality and efficient solutions for processing sewage. The other not negligible part is the high risk of being caught with no or false records and losing high value of the vessel. A guide for owners and shipyards on IMO certificates.
This will not become a general discussion about the development of standards in the maritime industry. Even though it is not a discussion about technical aspects or the efficiency of sewage treatment plants in detail. It is also well known to us, that specific STP’s are just on board without any relevant usage over years. Nevertheless, from our point of view it is an absolute must to protect the (maritime) environment with appropriate measures. (more…)
