The Maritime CleanCabin
As a result of the covid pandemic, most vessels have not been able to operate without severe restrictions regarding crew and passenger health. Therefore, Arkitech has developed the Maritime CleanCabin®. The MCC is a proven high-tech solution to quarantine contaminated passengers onboard and to prevent disease outbreaks at sea. One single regular cabin can be converted into an MCC.
The MCC quarantines contaminated persons using five key components. Click on the different components for more information.
To control the air pressure and quality, all data is carefully monitored with the Arkitech ARK M20 data analysis system. The system will automatically restore the under pressure whenever it is disturbed. Before critical values are exceeded, the system will signal and alarm the crew.
Using CDC and FDA approved technology, the MCCs are completely isolated from the other areas of the ship. Crew members can visit patients for medical care through an airlock, equipped with a passthrough system and cleaning facilities. The modified airflow system creates a constant under pressure in the MCC. Because of the under pressure, no air will flow out of the MCC and the internal air quality of the vessel is maintained. Food and necessities can be handed to the patient using a passthrough box, so zero direct contact between the contaminated person and the crew is necessary.
The air that goes into the MCC is filtered to the highest standards and the outgoing air directly leaves the vessel. That way the air quality on the other areas of the vessel will not be compromised. The risk of a disease outbreak is mitigated.
The MCC is created using existing and certified cleanroom technology. All furniture, walls, floors and ceilings are designed to be medically cleaned to the highest cleanroom standards. This is the same technology that is used in labs and other facilities with high hygiene standards at leading health care companies.
Besides offering a completely safe and healthy living environment, the quarantined patient will be provided with maximum comfort. The MCC will be equipped with a bed, TV, multimedia and bathroom. All designed to be cleaned to the highest standards.
