Membrane BioReactor Systems
Wärtsilä Hamworthy’s innovative MBR system is an evolution of the company’s proven sewage treatment technology for handling grey and black water waste.
With over 30 years experience in wastewater treatment, we understand the needs of the marine industry and can meet the challenges of protecting the environment.
Wärtsilä Hamworthy’s MBR technology is an advanced wastewater treatment process based on biological degradation and membrane separation. It delivers the highest quality discharge without requiring any addition or generation of chemicals hazardous to the maritime or shipboard environment.
Our know-how in shipboard wastewater treatment technology, which led to the success of the Super Trident sewage treatment plant, is at the core of this system. The Wärtsilä Hamworthy MBR is capable of meeting both current and anticipated effluent quality standards.
We continue to optimise the MBR system design. By building on our successful experiences and working closely with customers, we have successfully rolled out the MBR Mk I, Mk II, Mk III and Mk IV systems across wider marine and offshore sectors. The result is reduced energy consumption, with lower costs and importantly, fewer operational man-hours.
