NCLH to Install Air Purification Systems on 28 Ships
December 11, 2020
Last week NCL Holdings, the parent company of Norwegian Cruise Lines, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas announced their partnership with AtmosAir Solutions to install continuous disinfection air purification systems across all 28 ships in its fleet.
The new filtration system will feature continuous active Covid-19 disinfection through bi-polar ionization in the air and on all surfaces, an all natural solution with no harmful chemicals, radiations or by-products. One of the biggest advantages to this system is it allows air to be purified in the actual space rather than having it pass through an air handler unit to be cleaned.
Tests performed by Microchem, one of the world’s leading laboratories for testing EPA and FDA sanitizing products confirmed that the presence of the Corona virus was reduced by 99.92% within 30 minutes of exposure to AtmosAir.
Robin Lindsay, Executive Vice President of Vessel Operations for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said
” Whilst it’s impossible to completely eliminate the risk of Covid-19, the AtmosAir technology is one of many investments the company is making to enhance it’s already rigorous health and safety standards. We are working diligently on our multi-layered strategy for health and safety and AtmosAir’s proven all-natural, bi-polar ionization technology will add yet another layer of protection on board our ships.”
AtmosAir’s patented bi-polar ionization technology continuously attacks corona virus and other viruses quickly and effectively in the air and on surfaces, rather than requiring the air to be filtered out first. The technology works by releasing ions through the HVAC system, and these ions bond with viruses, breaking down their cellular structure and rendering them harmless.
AtmosAir is providing a safe, natural and environmentally friendly process and helping protect cruise ships, airports, casinos, sports facilities, educational institutions and other commercial buildings.
