OVER A 12-MONTHS PERIOD, The National Geographic Explorer experienced more than a 50% reduction in gastrointestinal cases reported to the ship’s doctor.”*
*The reduction is compared to the yearly reported cases from the previous three years before the implementation of Premium Purity™.
Case: National Geographic Explorer
One of our clients is Lindblad Expeditions and their fleet of National Geographic expedition ships.
The first vessel on which we implemented Premium Purity™ was The National Geographic Explorer, a state-of-the-art ice-class expedition ship. The Explorer accommodates 148 guests in 81 spacious cabins, and is equipped with the latest tools for exploration.
It also used to have many conventional cleaning detergents on board, but in 2018 a team from ACT.Global was invited onboard to implement Premium Purity™ on the entire ship.
Consequently, six cleaning detergents were reduced to one – the ACT ECA System™ – and the ship eliminated its chemical use. Moreover, Lindblad Expeditions removed over 1,000 plastic bottles containing detergents fleet wide, and reduced their water consumption by 1.1 million gallons per year, as they no longer not need to rinse off conventional detergents.
The crew was also trained in a more efficient and healthier way of working with disinfection and cleaning.
Based on great results and high crew satisfaction with Premium Purity™ onboard the Explorer, Lindblad Expeditions has decided to roll out the solution to their entire fleet in 2020.
Premium Purity™ is built on advanced technology and has both practical and visible impact with many benefits.
To highlight this, we have collected some thoughts about Premium Purity™ from five members of the Lindblad Expeditions crew.
Some appreciate the solution for business and efficiency reasons, some highlight the positive impact it has had on their workflow, and others enjoy working without cracked hands.
