The second in the series which is now under construction at the shipyard, MSC World America, will also benefit from the technology - part of the BIO-SEA by BIO-UV Group range.
‘We are delighted that Chantiers de l’Atlantique has once again trusted the performance of BIO-SEA UV technology to treat its ships’ ballast waters,’ commented Benoît Gillmann, BIO-UV Group’s president and CEO.
Regarding MSC World Europa, he said, ‘We have a long relationship with Chantiers de l’Atlantique going back more than 10 years, so pleased to partner with the shipbuilder on this milestone MSC Cruises flagship and other vessels. This newbuild and the ones to come are proof of the trust and confidence Chantiers de l’Atlantique has in BIO-UV Group's maritime division.’
BIO-SEA UV technology for MSC World Europa
MSC Cruises' new LNG-fuelled flagship incorporates a sophisticated wastewater management arrangement, as well as a skid-mounted BIO-SEA B series unit for treating ballast water.
A BIO-SEA B02 0300 BWTS was selected as being the most effective way of meeting MSC World Europa’s 215,863gt ship’s 300m3/h ballast water flow rate requirement. The system also features an embedded power management cabinet for ease of operation.
More than 10 units on order
The cruise line has more than 10 BIO-SEA units either in service or on order. Similar units are installed on all four of the shipowner’s Meraviglia- and Meraviglia Plus-class vessels: MSC Bellisima, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Grandiosa and MSC Virtuosa.
