BioHiTech Global, Inc., a sustainable technology and services company, said SeaDream Yacht Club completed its first voyage using the Altapure AP-4 high-level disinfectant system provided by BioHiTech as part of its COVID-19 safety protocols for cruising.
SeaDream I completed a 15-day cruise to Barbados where the Altapure AP-4 was used to provide high-level disinfection throughout the ship, including guest and crew cabins as well as dining areas, health facilities and other common areas. The ship will be sailing weekly out of Bridgetown, Barbados, starting on Nov. 7 with the Altapure AP-4 onboard to ensure the highest level of disinfection for the safety of its guests and crew.
“SeaDream is leading by example, showing the rest of the cruise industry how to resume operations with a safety-first mentality that will only enhance their luxury cruise experience,” said Frank Celli, CEO of BioHiTech. “Passengers and crew can feel more at ease when common areas and cabins are regularly disinfected to a hospital-grade level. When combined with other safety protocols, SeaDream is creating a road map for others in the industry to follow to help bring back this important industry and we look forward to being a part of it.”
Altapure AP-4 is an enhanced, automated and touchless high-level disinfection sub-micron aerosol system that provides a safe process and rapid elimination of spores, viruses, and vegetative bacteria, such as, but not limited to: COVID-19, Acinetobacter baumanii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, VRE, MRSA, Bacillus atrophaeus, Geobacillus stearothermophilus, Polio virus, C. auris and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile).
Extensive research and development resulted in the creation of a very unique and patented aerosol generation technology that when coupled with the liquid agent Altacare, a reagent grade peracetic acid solution, yields rapid and unparalleled results for high level disinfection. All of Altapure’s products are engineered, manufactured, and assembled in the U.S. For more information, visit www.seadream.com. or www.biohitech.com.
