Azimut Yachts in another pioneering move, makes use of a Nasa patent

Living up to its role as forerunner, Azimut Yachts is the first shipyard to choose a system patented by Nasa to renew and sanitize the air on board its yachts. Called MMVS, the system will be fitted to new models produced by Azimut Yachts, starting with the new Magellano 25 Metri.

Azimut Yachts, which has always closely monitored the results of research into advanced technology to offer owners the very best in terms of comfort, quality of materials and onboard safety, will introduce an innovative system called MMVS (Marine Mechanical Ventilation System) on many of the Shipyard’s new yachts. Based on a Nasa patent and originally developed for use on aerospace missions to sanitize the air on board, the first yacht fitted with MMVS will be the Magellano 25 Metri, a remarkable model from the Shipyard that will make its debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Produced by Italian company BCool Engineering, which specialises in the production and marketing of onboard thermal comfort and power products, MMVS is a centralised system split across the two decks, ensuring a complete change of air every hour. The air inside the boat is therefore always at the chosen temperature, as well as being continuously purified by safe, effective and comprehensive sanitization of the air conditioning ducts, surfaces and technical components like the fan coils. The end result is fresh, clean, sanitized air, at a constant conditioned temperature, for guests to breathe on board.

Based on PCO™ (Photocatalytic Oxidation) technology, the system imitates and reproduces the process that takes place in nature, exploiting the combined action of the rays produced by a special UV lamp and a catalytic structure, without affecting the yacht’s power and consumption. 

Azimut Yachts, the first company in the industry to offer this system on new models, has decided to introduce this technology in response to an increasingly topical and widespread need. The quality of the air we breathe has an objective and material impact on the quality of our lives. And unlike atmospheric pollution, which has been a focus of attention for many years now, the need to look in more detail at pollution in interior environments has emerged only more recently, not least because of the increasing amount of alarming scientific evidence to emerge about the health impacts of this phenomenon. Which is why, perfectly attuned to the times, Azimut Yachts is responding in this way to a growing need that reflects a new increasingly healthy and natural lifestyle.

This innovative system joins a long list of other solutions that the Shipyard has introduced ahead of the competition – from gyroscopic stabilizers to joystick manoeuvring systems, and from IPS propulsion and integrated control and monitoring systems through to automatic trim adjustment – confirming its ability to anticipate customers’ needs and desires, based on a close relationship and ongoing dialogue.BCOOL_technologyBCOOL_technology
