Virgin Voyages has selected ventilation solutions for its flagship Scarlet Lady it says will help it achieve its goal to “incorporate smart technologies” across the ship that help limit its environmental impact.
The new cruise operator has chosen Halton to supply ventilation solutions for galleys and restaurants on board Scarlet Lady.
Virgin Voyages chose the Halton MARVEL system for the galleys on board Scarlet Lady. Compared to traditional hoods, Halton said its hoods equipped with the MARVEL system and Capture Jet technology can save up to 50% in energy consumption from galley ventilation. In traditional systems, galley ventilation is maintained at a constant level, whereas with the Halton MARVEL system, ventilation exhaust and supply air volumes are adjusted according to real need, the manufacturer said.
Scarlet Lady will feature more than 20 food venues when it is launched in 2020. In Geonbae, the ship’s Korean BBQ restaurant, people can cook their own food on flameless grills built into the table. This area will have 30 units of the Halton Jet Extraction System installed above the tables.
“These units have been designed specifically for show-cooking areas, and this particular JES model was tailored according to Virgin Voyages’ needs and their visual concept. Tailoring and co-design required several mock-ups at the Halton factory in Germany,” said Halton Marine sales manager Tapani Peltola.
Virgin Voyages senior vice president of hotel operations Frank Weber said “Halton not only provides top quality products and state-of-the-art technologies, but their team of experts allowed us to challenge the status quo and develop an industry-leading custom solution, which will allow us to bring our lively Geonbae restaurant to life while also helping us achieve our goal to incorporate smart technologies across the ship that help us limit our environmental impact.”
Another ventilation solution on board Scarlet Lady is the Halton mobile cooking station called Halton MobiChef, which is an autonomous cooking station for electric appliances, free from any ventilation ducts.
