The company River Advice started to make its Avalon fleet environment-friendly a few years ago. The Avalon Scenery was the first ship to use the MERUS water treatment technology, which was installed in 2012, marking the beginning of a cooperation between River Advice and Pronomar. Now several Avalon ships have the MERUS rings on board, including most recently the Monarch Empress.

The Monarch Empress is a luxurious river cruise ship with 72 cabins which can accommodate 144 passengers. Furthermore, the vessel is equipped with a bar-lounge, restaurant and fitness center. 
With the MERUS water treatment technology the lifespan of water bearing installations will be extended, the risk for failures will be limited and service intervals will be extended, according to Pronomar.
After installation, the rings will give of an overlapping frequency to the water, which will disturb the deposits of e.g. lime scale in the water lines. The lime scale will flush away along with the water, instead of building up inside the water lines. All existing substances show characteristic, material-bound frequency patterns which are overlapped with targeted frequencies by the MERUS technology. Therefore little to no chemicals - which harm the environment - are needed in the process. Also, less detergents are necessary to keep the sanitation clean, which of course is also beneficent for the environment.
