Evac’s Complete Cleantech Solution selected for new Ritz-Carlton bespoke yacht collection
06 February 2018
Ritz-Carlton, the luxury hotelier, is entering the cruise business and has commissioned the construction of three vessels.
Each yacht will have space for 298 guests and include duplex penthouses, a Ritz-Carlton spa, and a restaurant from Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Wolfsburg, Germany.
For the interior design, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has partnered with cruise ship design firm Tillberg Design of Sweden. The ships will be built by the shipyard Hijos de J. Barreras, a 125-year-old family company and largest private Spanish shipbuilder.
Evac, a leading provider of integrated waste-, wastewater-, and water management systems for the marine, offshore, and building industries, has been selected to ensure the sustainability of the collection’s wastewater treatment and fresh water generation. Employing the Complete Cleantech Solution, the collection will use the Evac vacuum collection system, with Optima 5 vacuum toilets and EcoVac vacuum tanks.
The ships’ wastewater treatment systems will include two Evac MBR 95 KN plants with pre-screening and sludge handling, and the dry- and wet waste systems utilize Evac vacuum food waste collection units, a briquetting unit, and the new generation cyclone incinerator. The yachts will also utilize Evac’s fresh water generation systems.
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will offer cruises ranging from seven to 10 days, with the first yacht to set sail in 2019.
