In line with Evac's aim to be a life-cycle partner to its customers the company says it is investing heavily in the development of its services.

“The recent acquisitions of the Cathelco Group (including Hydro-Electrique Marine (HEM) and Echo Marine) and our former representative Transvac Systems are closely linked to our goal of being a true life-cycle partner for our customers”, said Tomi Gardemeister (illustrated), President and CEO, Evac Group.

“The UK based Transvac Systems, has, for instance, specialised in the servicing of wastewater treatment systems, sanitary systems and ballast water treatment systems for naval and various other ship types and offshore platforms. HEM in France and Echo Marine in Mallorca, in turn, are well known service partners focusing especially on superyachts.”

Evac’s integrated water and waste management systems, as well as corrosion protection systems, help to decrease environmental footprint by saving fresh water and energy, but also by lengthening the life-cycle of customers' assets.

The company says that customers can purchase all services and cleantech solutions from a single supplier which simplifies coordination and integration. It also means there is the convenience of a single point of contact throughout the life-time of the equipment when maintenance or modifications are required. The integrated systems use similar interfaces and this makes training, supervision and management much easier, particularly in the initial stages.

When spare parts or servicing are required Evac has representatives in almost 70 countries. “Today, Evac has service hubs in North America, Northern Europe and Southern Europe. The establishment of new hubs is under planning”, said Ken Postle, President of global service.

Over the years, customers’ requirements can change as the result of updated legislation or because vessels operate in different areas where special conditions apply such as Alaska or the Baltic Sea. The relevant system updates are answered by Evac’s designers who can look at all the related needs such as logistics and available space on board. They will then plan the optimal system and examine all the installation requirements and either carry out the installation or supervise the work. on board.”
