The MERUS Water Treatment Proves Successful in Hotel Industry

Many hotels deal with lime scale in their boilers, kitchen equipment, swimming pools, saunas and of course on the sanitary ware in the bathrooms. This could have a negative impact on the hotel customer experience, therefore everything needs to be done to keep the facilities clean and lime scale free. Recently, the Dutch Hotel Arena and QO Hotel both saw opportunities in using Pronomar’s MERUS water treatment to reduce lime deposits inside waterlines and other water-bearing systems. After installing the MERUS rings, the water treatment gives off an overlapping molecular frequency to the water, which slows the scaling process and keeps the deposits longer in suspension. With the MERUS water treatment hotel businesses are able to reduce their expenditures on

Merus rings, VOS Stone, green water technology

Sustainably Withstanding Water Obstacles With Merus Rings on the VOS Stone

Following successful installation on board ‘VOS Start’, Vroon contracted Pronomar to equip sister newbuild vessel, ‘VOS Stone’, with the Merus technology. These two subsea-support walk-to-work units were purpose built for Vroon, to support offshore operations and walk-to-work (W2W) projects in today’s Renewable Energy and Oil & Gas industries. Installation of the professional Merus rings was one of the last steps ‘VOS Stone’ had to undertake, since she was already contracted for offshore logistics activities and W2W support at the Arkona Offshore Windfarm park. On board various vessels and offshore platforms, the Merus ring has proven valuable in counteracting issues with corrosion, scaling and marine growth, such as mussels and barnacles, in pipelines. The technology consists of a treated ring that
