Evac acquires CleanSea MBBR for maritime applications

Evac Oy has acquired the CleanSea Marine business from Headworks Bio Inc, a forerunner in the field of land based municipal and industrial wastewater treatment as well as in marine applications.

Through this acquisition Evac claims to gain a competitive edge regarding advanced wastewater treatment business and technology within the maritime segment worldwide.

‘This move will strengthen our role in the growing market of wastewater treatment and will further enhance our total waste management solution for our main customers,’ says Tomi Gardemeister, president and ceo of the Evac Group.

CleanSea MBBR technology is already well known in the cruise sector having the world's largest cruise ship references: Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. Earlier deliveries include the Radiance and Millennium class cruise ships.

‘The acquisition of a competitive technology from a strong partner like Headworks Bio will give us the chance to accelerate our development. This agreement will deliver clear customer benefits by providing a proven alternative wastewater treatment solution, CleanSea MBBR technology, for our marine customers,’ he continues.

‘Ideally our cruise customers' environmental needs can now be solved through one single contact point. We now have the ability to provide optimal solutions on AWP no matter what vessel type or size,’ notes Mika Karjalainen, coo of Evac Oy.
