HAMANN donates sewage treatment plant to SEA SHEPHERDSea Shepherd uses HAMANN sewage treatment equipment on several of their vessels operating around the world. As a part of the long standing collaboration and in support of their efforts to protect our marine environment, HAMANN AG has also donated a HL-CONT PLUS sewage treatment plant to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

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.”
