Holland America & Winning Brands' Solvent Free Solutions Team are installing the SMART Wet Cleaning System on 3 additional cruse ships between March and May, 2008. The system is an environmental alternative to traditional dry cleaning using Perc, and processes 'Dry Clean Only' garments for passengers and crew. Holland America Line has taken a leadership role in the cruise industry for on-board environmental garment cleaning.

Winning Brands Corporation reports that orders have been placed with Winning Brands' Solvent Free Solutions Team for the installation of its SMART Wet Cleaning System on Holland America Line's ms Zuiderdam, ms Oosterdam and ms Westerdam. All 3 ships are Holland America Line "Vista-class" ships and as such embrace the latest industry and environmental technologies.

Holland America Line is a leader in converting its cruise ships to an environmentally friendly alternative to on-board dry cleaning. The new system, SMART Wet Cleaning, does not use the solvent commonly associated with dry cleaning, Perchloroethylene (Perc) but uses environmentally gentler cleaning agents and clean water instead. The conversion is part of an ongoing commitment by Holland America Line toward excellence in all fields of operation. These conversions will be the 9th, 10th and 11th Holland America Line cruise ships to adopt the SMART Wet Cleaning System.

The system is comprised of professional wet cleaning equipment from Miele, finishing equipment from Viet and the SMART Wet Cleaning Solutions from Winning Brands Corporation. The cleaning agents are environmentally advanced in that they permit processing "Dry Clean Only" garments by utilizing clean water instead of hazardous solvents.

The system is considered a breakthrough in convenience, safety and comfort for professional garment cleaning and is capable of processing all garments on board. The 3 ships together are rated for a combined passenger and crew count of 8,012 people.
