24/7 disinfection service launched

With the World Health Organisation (WHO) advising that cabins and living quarters as well as the rest of the ship are disinfected when there is a case of Covid-19 on board a vessel, a new 24/7 Covid-1 disinfection service will be launched.

Damen Shiprepair Harbour & Voyage (DSHV), the mobile ship repair squad of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, is extending its scope with its new disinfection service based on WHO approved methods and using stabilized hydrogen peroxide. The solution is colourless and odourless and causes no damages to interiors or surfaces. All areas aboard the vessel are disinfected using approved methods and risk assessments prior operation starts. Operating successfully in the cruise sector, the service can be provided to any type of vessel; alongside as well as during voyage according to client requirements.

DSHV’s MD, Jozeph W.D. Quak says, “As with a lot of viruses, the coronavirus can be spread more easily on board a ship. People are in close proximity to each other on a vessel and self-isolation can be more difficult in such a limited space. The disease can be spread not only with coughing and sneezing, but also touching areas that have been infected. Therefore, hygiene and disinfection are essential. With this service we are looking to assist our clients through this challenging time.”
