WATER	CONSERVATION	&	ONBOARD	PRODUCTION	|	Onboard	Production
2018	REPORTED		
WATER	PRODUCTION

ONBOARD PRODUCTION
Ship	water	is	primarily	used	by	our	guests	and	crew	in	
their	staterooms	for	showers,	bathtubs	and	sinks	but	
is	also	used	for	galleys,	laundry,	pools,	whirlpools,	spas	
and	cleaning	public	spaces.

BUNKERED	
WATER

15%

We	have	focused	our	efforts	on	increasing	water	
production	on	board	with	sophisticated	plants	that	use	
seawater	as	the	source,	which	reduces	the	need	for	the	
bunkering	of	fresh	water.	This	is	particularly	important	
in	countries	where	fresh	water	is	limited	and	best	
reserved	for	local	populations.	Over	the	past	two	years,	
our	ships	have	produced	more	than	80	percent	of	their	
water	on	board.

2018	NORWEGIAN	CRUISE	LINE	HOLDINGS	STEWARDSHIP	REPORT

Reverse Osmosis (RO)	produces	fresh	and	technical	
water	from	seawater	using	high-pressure	pumps	and	
sophisticated	water	filters	and	treatment	components.	RO	
plant	production	can	range	from	250	M3	to	825	M3,	based	
on	the	size	and	capacity	of	the	plant.	We	currently	have	
44	RO	plants	and	are	continually	evaluating	further	
installations	on	our	vessels.
Evaporators	produce	fresh	water	from	seawater	
utilizing	heat	sources	such	as	Exhaust	Gas	Boilers,	OilFired	Boilers	or	Wasted	Heat	recovered	from	the	main	
engine	high-temperature	cooling	system.
Bunkered Water	is	potable	water	acquired	in	port	for	
use	on	board.

Some	of	our	water

include	installing	
water	flow	reducers	
(sink	taps,	shower	
heads	and	galley	sink	
taps),	increasing	or	
upgrading	onboard	
RO	plants	and	plans	
to	install	water	
meters	to	measure	
water	consumption.
