Contargo AG disinfects containers
More and more countries are introducing stringent disinfection regulations in their ports – not only as protection from Corona, but also to avoid the unintentional introduction of foreign plant and animal species and dangerous microorganisms. For this reason, as of now Contargo AG in Basel is offering the professional disinfection of empty containers as a new service.
The treatment of the containers is carried out by our personnel using Diosol-19 and a special fumigation device. The agent, consisting of hydrogen peroxide and silver ions, decomposes completely into steam and oxygen, and is thus environmentally friendly and non-damaging to materials. In addition, trace amounts of silver remain on the surfaces and prevent microorganisms from multiplying. We then seal the empty container, and the customer receives a certificate that the disinfection has been successfully carried out. Contargo offers this service not only for containers stored in the Basel depot, but also for containers that are brought to the terminal especially for this purpose.
