Hamburg/Bremen, 9th September 2016 - “Digitalisation, sustainability and security – as the world’s leading trade fair for the maritime industry, SMM 2016 took a far-sighted look at the top issues trending in the sector”, summed up Dr. Christian Ausfelder, Managing Director of RWO, a Veolia Group company and one of the leading providers of water treatment systems on ships and offshore platforms. ”A strong programme line-up drew many of our partners to Hamburg, so we were able to engage in many constructive conversations.”

At the fair, RWO presented the CleanSewage Bio water treatment system, Seawater Reverse Osmosis SRO-COM as well as a further development of the Oily Water separator OWS-COM. “Visitors to our stand were particularly interested in treating wastewater with the CleanSewage Bio, which saves up to 25 % of space compared to other systems, is easy to operate, requires substantially lower maintenance and enables a faster restart”, said Ausfelder. The Seawater Reverse Osmosis SRO-COM, a desalination system aboard ships, stood out in particular due to its lower capital expenditures, energy costs and a smaller version with a capacity of up to 60 m3/day. An improved version of the world’s leading product of its category, the RWO Oily Water Separator OWS-COM was also presented to those gathered at the stand: New filter cartridges with twice the service life lower operating costs and increase operational reliability.

“Total Water Management”, or focussing on the totality of on board water systems, was a major topic discussed at our stand. We have been seeing significantly growing demand for integrated water treatment solutions, especially for cruise ships, even prior to the SMM. We took some firm orders here", summarized Ausfelder. “Our conversations also mirrored the growing significance of digitalisation in marine technology. Of special relevance to us are things like remote inspection and predictive maintenance of the water treatment systems on board and on land.”
