Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) awarded Scanship a 2-year service agreement, confirming the continuation of longtime co-operation for cleaner oceans. It's been fifteen years since Scanship installed the first AWP (advanced water purification) systems onboard NCL ships.

Since 2002 Scanship company has retrofitted 11 Norwegian vessels with advanced wastewater treatment systems. As of 2004, 6 newbuilds have been equipped with Scanship total clean ships systems, such as garbage handling, bio residue treatment and foodwaste processing. All ships are in full compliance with Alaska discharge requirements (introduced 2003).

From 2010, the Norwegian Cruise Line newbuilds in Breakaway and Breakaway Plus class have been deployed with wastewater purification systems in compliance with new IMO Marpol standard for special areas removing nitrogen and phosphorus.

The most recent advanced water purification retrofit with Scanship technology was performed last year on Oceania Sirena meeting the same standard to be enforced in Baltic Sea from 2019.

A total of 17 cruise ships are currently operating Scanship systems in the Norwegian Cruise Line Holding fleets, 15 for Norwegian Cruise Line, 1 ship for Oceania and 1 ship of Regent Seven Seas.
