SMS Group moves into sanitation

The SMS Group (ship repair and engineering), trading from seven ports in the UK, is providing mobile sanitation services.

The company has established a team to provision mobile sanitation services to key customers with ship-side and shore-side assets that are in need of either one-off sanitation pre-recommencement of service, or routine sanitation whilst in service or in refit.

“Sanitation is now a challenge. We’ve seen interest from both Commercial and Defence customers alike,” says Nicholas Warren, Commercial Director.

“Our ‘fogging’ solution allows the operatives, working in two-man teams, to safely and quickly sanitise all the spaces on vessels that have historically proven difficult to do so by conventional methods.

“We can ‘fog’ machinery spaces, voids and bilges, small cabins, stair wells and both crew and passenger spaces with ease.

“This service is offered on a one-off, or scheduled basis. Our intent is to sanitise any given area against COVID-19, and at the same time ensure that passengers, crew and/or shipyard workers are aware of these higher standards of routine sanitisation.

“As the ‘lockdown’ eases we will see various marine platforms, across all our markets, with many of our key customers, being ‘reactivated’.

“You’ll also see shipyards return to work. If we can ‘fog’ vessel/shipyard spaces as part of the ‘reactivation’, and then thereafter between crew/shift changes, overnight, or on passenger turnarounds, then we hope to help our customers maintain the highest standards of onboard and shore-side sanitation.

“We want to stay safe and help keep Britain trading.”

The SMS Group has positioned ‘foggers’ and trained operatives throughout the business’s seven locations.
