Hydroxyl Systems awarded $6M contract for wastewater systems on cruise vessels
VICTORIA, BC-Hydroxyl Systems has been awarded a $6-million contract to supply two of its CleanSea(R) advanced wastewater purification systems to Royal Caribbean Cruises, of Miami, Florida, for use onboard Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises vessels. The turnkey contract calls for Hydroxyl Systems to begin simultaneous installation of the two CleanSea(R) systems this month, with completion scheduled for June 2006. The CleanSea wastewater treatment systems will effectively process all black water and grey water generated aboard the 2,500-passenger Radiance of the Seas and 2,000-passenger Celebrity Summit cruise vessels. The application of this technology will enable Royal Caribbean to surpass, by 50%, Alaska's stringent environmental regulatory standards for effluent discharge within sensitive aquatic environments along the state's coastline. The company is already using two Hydroxyl wastewater systems onboard its Enchantment of the Seas and the Vision of the Seas cruise vessels. Based in Victoria, BC, Hydroxyl Systems specializes in providing biofilm carrier and advanced oxidation technology for wastewater treatment. Its proprietary technologies are used to treat biodegradable and refractory wastewater constituents in marine, industrial, municipal, and decentralized settings.
