The world continues to face the challenges, relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the second wave has sustainably inscribed this virus in everyone’s daily lives, ENGIE Solutions offer air treatment solutions to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in cruise and naval vessels. In order to improve the comfort, health and safety of passengers and crews in public areas and cabins, ENGIE Solutions designs, implements and maintains solutions suited to existing systems, bringing them together in a single ‘Healthy Ship’ offering. Bio-decontamination and IAQ improvement Nowadays, solutions exist for bio-decontamination and IAQ improvement Nowadays, solutions exist for bio-decontamination and IAQ improvement. They require precise HVAC technical expertise, in order to properly size them, so that they can be modulated and adapted within a centralised installation. Aware of the importance of the marine industry in the economic recovery and the need for vessels operators to provide a safe environment before being able to restart operations, ENGIE Solutions provides its expertise, HVAC solutions know-how and overall energy management experience to the maritime sector. effectiveness and performance of platforms This system enables the vessel owners and operators, to ensure the effectiveness and performance of their platforms, while optimising facilities and equipment, and ensuring the safety of all those on board. This offer may take different forms that meet the constraints of the vessel and its operation. Indeed, ENGIE Solutions provide services ranging from the disinfection of equipment (with certification by an independent laboratory) to the design and installation of new equipment and its physical integration into control/command systems. ‘Healthy Ship’ offering The ‘Healthy Ship’ offering is fully modular and fits the actual needs of vessel operators. It can include: The cleaning and sanitisation of air handling and fan coil units. Adapting the design of HVAC-R technical systems to accommodate new plug-and-play anti-virus equipment if required. Examples of such equipment are: definition and integration of separate extraction fans to address specific pollution areas. High efficiency HEPA filters identical to those used in hospital HVAC systems. Integration of UV-C lamps in a new or existing HVAC System. The modification of automation programs to incorporate a virus mode. Other solutions have been analysed (photocatalytic oxidation chambers, electrostatic filtration), both in terms of their effectiveness against viruses and their action on VOCs. Bio-decontamination solutions These bio-decontamination solutions aim to provide a clean and healthy environment on board vessels These bio-decontamination solutions aim to provide a clean and healthy environment on board vessels, by combating the spread of viruses through air conditioning. In a health emergency, these measures also allow the creation of a medical zone where the HVAC operates in ‘safe area’ mode enabling 100% treatment of fresh air, pressure control and, if necessary, absolute filtration. Thus, as the global supplier of HVAC installations and refrigeration equipment, ENGIE Solutions is positioning itself as a key player in the specific treatment of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tailored solutions suited to equipment ENGIE Solutions, the globally renowned in HVAC solutions for marine vessels for over 35 years, provides tailored solutions suited to equipment already in place, meeting the requirements of ship owners and cruise companies (footprint, weight, energy consumption). “ENGIE Solutions is proud to be working more closely than ever with its clients to enable them to reinvent their living and working spaces. Even more, in this period of global pandemic, we are pleased to be able to help create safer and more sustainable environments and to be a direct part of the resumption of the business,” said Pierre Hardouin, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ENGIE Solutions for Industries.
