Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic Explorer take the lead in sustainable disinfection

One of our clients is Lindblad Expeditions and their fleet of National Geographic expedition ships.

The first vessel we implemented Premium Purity™ on 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 on board to implement Premium Purity™ on the entire ship.

Consequently, six cleaning detergents was reduced to one – the ACT ECA System™ – and the ship reduced its chemical use. The crew was 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 decided to roll-out the solution to their entire fleet.

And in 2019, we re-coated the Explorer and updated the crew on the newest developments within hygiene and efficient cleaning protocols.

We look forward to working with Lindblad Expeditions in the years to come.

“Over a 12-months period, The National Geographic Explorer experienced more than 50% reduction in gastrointestinal cases reported to the ship’s doctor.”*

Premium Purity™ is built on advanced technology and has both practical and visible impact. The benefits are many.

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.
