The cruise industry provides a unique combination of luxury hospitality services in a compact, self-contained environment and has equally unique water treatment needs. High quality water treatment is imperative to safe cruise ship operations and environmental compliance.
For marine shipping operations, ballasting is vital prior to and after loading and unloading cargo in order to provide vessel stability and enable the propeller to remain submerged. However, in order to eliminate the risk of invasive species, ballast water must be comprehensively treated prior to discharge according to regulations.
Onvector is developing non-chemical, directed-energy systems using plasma to deliver cost-savings and robust compliance in marine water treatment applications.
