The world is not only expanding for the traditional export markets, but for tourism as well. In the past, for Europeans ‘going on a holiday’ meant booking a sun holiday to Spain in the summer and to Austria for winter sport in the winter. Nowadays, booking a holiday means a flight to Asia or a cruise to Alaska – where the ice is not only in your drinks, but also in the water surrounding you.
Many cruise operators offer trips to the coldest parts of the world. One of them is Seabourn Cruise Line, owned by Carnival Corporation. They take their guests to Alaska, but also places like the Baltic Sea, the northern parts of Greenland, Canada and even Antarctica. On these cruises the passengers often step into smaller boats or kayaks to explore the surroundings and have an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. As they come across harsh weather conditions, they are all obliged to wear protective clothes such as kayak suits, immersion suits, parkas, winter boots etc.
Seabourn does not only focus on providing the passengers with an ultimate experience, they also take good care of their crew. The crew have a high responsibility of keeping the passengers safe by navigating through the sometimes rather rough waters and working in temperatures of below -20 degrees. By investing in an economical and sustainable drying system also their protection wear stays nice and warm. Additionally, by drying them professionally by means of a large amount of air, they can reduce 99% of the bacteria growing inside. That is why, after already having equipped the Seabourn Quest and Encore, the drying systems were also installed onboard the Seabourn Sojourn.
The drying systems, which are made of stainless steel, work rapidly and dry from the inside out, while only needing a small amount of energy. The automatic timers and added bonus of a 10 year warranty contribute to the fact that the drying systems are your guarantee of properly dry and maintained PPE and consequentially satisfied guests and motivated employees.
Pronomar is convinced that the drying systems are contributing positively to the working environment onboard the Seabourn ships.
