Compliance with environmental regulations requiring effluent from cruise ships to be clean and safe can be a real challenge. Wärtsilä Water & Waste has a proven track record in developing technology to meet these anticipated environmental standards. Our solutions have now set the global benchmark for wastewater management. Wärtsilä can provide the cruise market with a complete, fully integrated, wet and dry waste treatment package.
One single supplier for the complete waste management.
Due to the new demand from cruise yards for integrated waste treatment systems, Wärtsilä Water & Waste has developed a complete waste treatment package for ships where all systems are working together.
In practice, the new system of waste handling means better possibilities to reuse and recycle. Materials like metal and glass can now be collected separately inside the ship. Taken onshore when the ship comes to harbour, these materials can be transferred for recycling, and nothing goes to waste. The water is processed through a ‘grey and black water’ treatment system. The dried waste is handled together with bio-material and other burnable waste. It can be burned on-board in incinerators, which are also part of Wärtsilä’s waste-management system.
One of the benefits of a complete waste management solution is the footprint. On cruise ships, a surprisingly large amount of waste can build up in a short time. Before, the storing of the waste took a lot of space. But now, as the waste is largely managed on-board, there is less need to store it, therefore requiring less space on the ship. There are environmental benefits as well. The less energy the waste-management systems use, the less energy that needs to be produced. With total waste management the efficient process of collection, recycling and disposal in modern low-emission incinerators provides high efficiency, with the lowest impact on the environment.

We optimize the operational reliability, cost efficiency and environmental sustainability of cruise ships.
If you are in the cruise segment, working as an owner/operator or perhaps running a cruise yard, then there is a clear advantage in maintaining a more proactive public image. This can be achieved with a complete waste treatment package optimised for the cruise market.
Wärtsilä as a global group can contribute with worldwide support 24/7 as well as provide main engines, propulsion equipment and much more. The complete waste treatment package that your cruise ship needs is now available from Wärtsilä. Having only one supplier for the whole package reduces your technical and commercial risks. In addition, the compact size can increase the vessels revenue in terms of more cabin space.
