New Contract Brings Record Growth to Evac

Evac Group has received its biggest cruise vessel contract in company history, fueling even further growth over last year’s 40 percent gain.

Although the company cannot yet disclose the name of the client, they confirm the order is for total waste management systems for four large-scale cruise vessels with an option to outfit an additional six vessels. The initial four-vessel contract is valued at approximately 30 million euros.

In addition, Evac Group has secured many large navy, coast guard, and offshore orders during the last quarter, increasing the company’s backlog value with 50% compared to the last year.

The Evac product package for each of the four cruise vessels includes an Evac Cleansea wastewater treatment plant enabling vessels to operate without any limitations. The Evac Cleansea plants allow vessels to be operated in many Environmentally Sensitive Sea Areas (ESSAs) and Special Areas (SAs) defined nationally or internationally, where special discharge restrictions apply.

The contract also includes dry and wet waste treatment systems including an incinerator and recycling equipment covering glass plastic, paper, cardboard and aluminum waste, food waste vacuum systems, a bio sludge treatment unit, plus vacuum collecting systems including six vacuum units and approximately 3,000 vacuum toilets per vessel.

The first of the four vessels has a scheduled delivery in 2018 with the last vessel slotted for 2022.

Tomi Gardemeister, CEO of Evac, says Evac estimated turnover for 2015 was 98 million euros and strong growth is anticipated during coming years.

Evac is the world’s leading provider of integrated waste-, wastewater-, and water management systems for the marine, offshore, and building industries. The company was established in 1979 and it now has completed over 20,000 marine and 2,000 building projects worldwide. Evac has 220 employees in Finland, Germany, France, China, Korea, the USA, Brazil, Norway, and representatives in more than 40 countries. The company’s estimated turnover is 98 million euros in 2015.
