TERRAGON WINS CONTRACT FOR NEW SEABOURN SHIP BEING BUILT AT MARIOTTI SHIPYARD.
Terragon Environmental Technologies Inc. was awarded a contract to build and install one of its patented products, the Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGSTM) on a new ultra-luxury, Seabourn expeditionary cruise ship. Under this contract, awarded by Wartsila, Terragon will assist the shipowner to run sustainable operations by using MAGS onboard to convert a variety of waste streams – including dry garbage, plastic, sludges and oils- into energy that can be utilized by the ship. Introducing MAGS on the Seabourn ship will greatly reduce the ship’s environmental impact and improve its waste processing operations since MAGS complies with the highest air emissions standards and meets all requirements for health and safety onboard. In addition to promising a clean and healthy environment to guests onboard, the installation of MAGS will further enhance Seabourn’s commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.
