How Palumbo SY Refit can make your superyacht virus-free

Written by Kayla Dowling

The Covid-19 pandemic has infiltrated almost every aspect of our daily lives. With the Mediterranean yachting season just around the corner and uncertainty regarding the future state of the pandemic, Palumbo SY Refit have made the possibility of a virus-free superyacht a reality.Superyachts during the Monaco Yacht Show 2019Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesIn addition to the threat of Covid-19, hazardous air pollutants can often find their way on board. In order to counter this problem, the Palumbo SY Refit research and development team took it upon themselves to find a solution to risks posed by air pollutants. The result is a two-part, on board air purification system, which can be installed on already cruising vessels, that ensures that your superyacht remains a healthy and safe environment.

The first technology uses non-thermal plasma (NTP) to prevent bacteria and viruses that may be present in external air, from ever coming on board. NTP is a state-of-the-art technology, considered to be the safest process for oxidizing and decomposing pollutants. In addition to preventing pollutants from circulating on board, the NTP system, through its oxidation process, can eliminate already established bacterial colonies by making them biologically inert.The device is effective in eliminating bacteria, moulds and viruses, bacterial endotoxins, volatile organic compounds and odours. Air pollutants such as the aforementioned not only sound unnerving, but pose a legitimate health hazard. This technology, adaptable to the individual sanitisation requirements of your superyacht, can be implemented via already existing pipelines and begin to sanitise the air on board within hours of installation.Even though the NTP system is able to prevent harmful airborne pollutants from entering your superyacht, such particles can be carried on board and spread by, for example, guests or staff. Therefore, a second device can be installed in complement to the NTP system, to carry out local disinfection. This device employs a vaporisation system, that utilises disinfectant liquid in combination with water, to disinfect the air ducts. The disinfection system can be used with a timer to ensure systematic sterilisation and clean air to breathe.
