Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) launched a solution to assist shipowners in meeting one of the demands of MLC2006. The Duct Air Treatment, showcased for the first time at APM Singapore, is an anti-bacteria block which works within HVAC systems onboard vessels to stop the spread of invisible mould, bacteria and viruses. The block works by sterilizing and sanitizing the entire onboard air conditioning system, including both the air passing through the system and the air handling unit, ducts and diffusers. It is 100% natural with no maintenance or energy costs and is quick and easy to install, with no need for installation equipment or training, according to WSS.
