Royal Caribbean Invests $2M Into Health and Safety Program from ByoPlanet

Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCCL) is extending its contract with ByoPlanet International of Sunrise, Fla., in a health and safety initiative designed to eradicate dangerous pathogens and protect guests from the debilitating effects of the Norovirus and other threatening viruses.  

The cruise line ordered 350 additional electrostatic sprayers as well as the commercial 900 delivery system from ByoPlanet. The CS 900 delivery system was designed specifically for cruise line logistics and the need to disinfect large areas in a short period of time. The new order is worth more than $2 million according to ByoPlanet president & COO Rick O’Shea.

New to RCCL’s arsenal this year is the BP 500 Backpack – which allows for a mobile technician to hit smaller, hard-to-reach spaces and high traffic areas with disinfectant.

ByoPlanet's latest generation of electrostatics produces small electrically charged droplets of EPA- approved chemical that “wrap around” germ-infested areas. The chemicals penetrate into the designated target, killing pathogens in areas difficult for traditional housekeeping methods to reach.
