The Royal Canadian Navy has awarded a contract to WPT Italy for the supply of thirteen WP02 Processor units(13x) converting bulk ship waste to dry, inert powder solid fuel. The WP02 processors are MIL-461G (EMC/EMI) and MIL-167-1A (vibrations) qualified.
The Royal Canadian Navy maintenance yard will integrate the WP Processor systems on Halifax Class Frigates. The factory acceptance testing (FAT) and the delivery of the first system to Canada is planned for Q2 2020.
The Department of National Defence (DND) requires innovative, proven, energy efficient, reliable, commercially available, compact solid waste treatment equipment, requiring minimal operator input that can reduce the volume and mass of onboard generated solid wastes on the Halifax Class ships.
