Success in core business - New orders increased by 32% in first four months of the year

Bremen, 13.05.2014 - RWO GmbH, manufacturer of water treatment plants in the maritime sector, can already report its first successes of 2014. In the first four months of the year the long-established Bremen-based company increased the orders received in its core business by 32% compared to the same period last year. The business sector encompasses oil separators, wastewater treatment plants in various sizes, emulsion separators, softeners and other systems for treating water on board.

RWO's Oily Water separator - already 14,000 units are sailing the seven seas

"RWO's results in the first months show clearly that focusing on quality becomes prevalent in the industry. Major European shipping companies trust the products of RWO, and our oily water separators are now installed on board more than 14,000 ships," commented Andreas Rosebrock, the company's new Sales Director, on the success. "The RWO systems above all convince ship owners by their lasting reliability," he said. Decisively in favour of the oil separators are also excellent treatment results, whose values are far below the prescribed 15 ppm limit. Even also for the frequently required 5 ppm, no additional systems must be employed upstream or downstream.

Pure plant business increases by even 68%

The figures now available for the core business cover the product lines of oily water separators, wastewater treatment plants, drinking water treatment and spare parts. In the pure plant business, the incoming orders were in fact increased by 68% compared to the previous year.
