At the end of 2021, the hybrid ship Rem Energy was christened in the traditional way and EnviroPac, Orwak’s sister company and distributor in Norway, delivered a powerful yet compact Orwak baler, well suited for the installations on board.  

Green Yard Kleven has built the offshore wind vessel on behalf of Rem Offshore AS. The ship is built with the future in mind, and has, among other things, a catalyst for cleaning the exhaust and battery packs with the possibility of zero-emission solutions. Rem Energy will provide service and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

Waste handling at sea

On a ship, every square meter is valuable, so waste must be handled accordingly, and waste compaction is an efficient way to save space. With a baler there are also better routines for waste management and areas become safer and tidier for the benefit of both staff and the environment. It results in cleaner waste fractions and a larger proportion of the waste goes to recycling. Ole Busengdal, Regional Sales Manager at EnviroPac, sold the machine to  Rem Energy:

“We have delivered the Orwak Compact 3115, a baler that fits well on ships due to little space demand and the high compaction ratio it provides. Compact 3115 has a large infeed and is easy to handle. The press is equipped with a material selector and both plastic and paper/cardboard can be compacted. The bale height can be adjusted to attain a maximum bale weight of 60 kg for cardboard, Mr. Busengdal adds. Installation is simple thanks to the “Plug-In” concept.

Easy shipping and stacking of plastic and cardboard bales

Easy waste handling is extra important on board a ship. Both plastic and cardboard can be compacted in the Orwak baler 3115. The machine is delivered with a trolley for easy transportation of the bales to the area where they are stacked and stored.


EnviroPac has a wide range of balers and other compaction equipment ideal for ferries, fishing vessels and larger cruise ships and delivers waste solutions and machines to all types of industries, including ships, offshore sites and the fishing industry.
