'Fog' - good!

A new team has been established to provision mobile sanitation services to key customers, using a 'fogging' solution to safely and quickly sanitise all vessel spaces.

In these challenging times The SMS Group is looking to innovate with the new team  focused on ship-side and shore-side assets that are in need of either one-off sanitation pre-recommencement of service, or routine sanitation whilst in service or in refit.

Nicholas Warren, Commercial Director of The SMS Group, said, “As a business we try to put the customer at the centre of what we do; their problems are often our problems. Sanitation is now a challenge.  We’ve seen interest from both Commercial and Defence customers alike.”

“Our ‘fogging’ solution allows the operatives, working in two-man teams, to safely and quickly sanitise all the spaces on vessels that have historically proven difficult to do so by conventional methods.  We can ‘fog’ machinery spaces, voids and bilges, small cabins, stair wells and both crew and passenger spaces with ease.”

“This service is offered on a one-off, or scheduled basis.  Our intent is to sanitise any given area against Covid-19, and at the same time ensure that passengers, crew and/or shipyard workers are aware of these higher standards of routine sanitisation.

We want to reassure all stakeholders and end users.”

He added: “As the ‘lockdown’ eases we will see various marine platforms, across all our markets, with many of our key customers, being ‘reactivated’. You’ll also see shipyards return to work.  If we can ‘fog’ vessel/shipyard spaces as part of the ‘reactivation’, and then thereafter between crew/shift changes, overnight, or on passenger turnarounds, then we hope to help our customers maintain the highest standards of onboard and shore-side sanitation. We want to stay safe and help keep Britain trading.”

The SMS Group has positioned ‘foggers’ and trained operatives working from each of the Group’s seven locations in an intitiative to ensure the geographical reach that it anticipates may be required.
