Coorperation between MEA-nl and Cathelco started in 2016.  Over the course of three years, a comprehensive, intensive, and, succesfull process of Land-Based and Ship-Board test followed. Leading us to several North-European Ports.   


IMO and ETV TA test series for the Land-Based ‘tier’ were executed during the test seasons of 2016 up to 2018. The Ship-Board tests brought us to several Danish ports where we tested the Cathelco system under challenging circumstances. 

The Cathelco Evolution system is the current name of this BWTS.
