As with all passenger liners the turnaround time in port has to be kept to a minimum.
Ships generate substantial waste and this can cause logistical problems if not handled efficiently.
To solve this problem P&O Cruises successfully trialed the unique Orwak model 5030B waste compactor and then installed four of them on Pacific Dawn and Pacific Princess vessels operating out of Sydney and Brisbane.
The electro-hydraulic press reduces fluffy cabin waste by a factor of 6:1 and conveniently seals contents in an outer strong 160L plastic bag for rapid and hygienic unloading procedure whilst docking.
Likewise the Maersk Shipping Line, the world’s largest shipping fleet, has applied the same Orwak technology to most of its 450 strong armada, saving time, space and money as they sail around the world.
