APATEQ, solution provider for the treatment of difficult wastewater, today announced an ongoing order intake for its systems. Despite the current COVID-19 crisis, affecting economies around the world, APATEQ is still continuously receiving new orders for its MarinePaq, treating wash water resulting from vessels exhaust gas cleaning by means of pioneering process technology. As of end of Q1, the orders are in the double-digit figures.

The on-board version of APATEQ's MarinePaq, launched in 2017, has so far been put into operation on more than one hundred ships worldwide, among others on the world’s largest container ships. The IMO (International Maritime Organization) sulphur cap, limiting the sulphur emissions from vessels to 0.5% worldwide and in defined regions (Emission Control Areas) to 0.1%, triggers a continuing demand for equipping existing and newly built ships with scrubber systems that reduce sulphur emissions to the required level. APATEQ’s MarinePaq for treatment of wash water from the scrubbing process is considered as a market reference in the maritime industry. The system excels by simple handling and long intervals between its maintenance procedures, allowing the MarinePaq to operate for a long period of time without interruptions. Surplus oil can easily be extracted from the scrub water, a feature that is unique on the market. The modular design of the MarinePaq allows an easy placement of the system in confined spaces on board as the modules can be set up in different areas of the room and connected by piping to form a unit, a characteristic much appreciated by shipowners and shipyards alike when it comes to retrofitting the system in existing vessels.

APATEQ’s production activities in Luxembourg have not stopped since the outbreak of COVID-19, respecting and enforcing the strictest precautionary and hygienic measures. The delivery of the latest ordered systems is scheduled for the second half of 2020.
