No equipment manufacturer has more experience in the shipboard and marine laundry industry than EDRO Corporation. EDRO DynaWash® washer-extractors and M-Series tumbler dryers are the brand of choice for naval and commercial cruise line main shipboard laundries worldwide.
For more than 50 years - beginning with the Essex-class, aircraft carrier CVS-10 USS Yorktown in 1965 - EDRO has developed an unprecedented list of shipboard and marine laundry installations. Vessels in this list include:
► The Ford class, nuclear-powered aircraft carrier CVN-78 USS Gerald R. Ford
► The Ohio class, nuclear-powered, guided missile submarine SSGN-727 USS Michigan
► The Zumwalt class, stealth-capable, guided missile destroyer DDG-1000 USS Zumwalt
► The Arleigh Burke class, guided missile destroyer DDG-112 USS Michael Murphy
► The San Antonio class, amphibious transport dock LPD-21 USS New York
► The LHA(R) class, amphibious assault ship LHA-6 USS America
The U.S. Navy utilizes 20 to 200-pound capacity EDRO DynaWash® washer-extractors and 20 to 110-pound M-Series tumbler dryers for surface shipboard laundries, and the ultra-compact DS16-SUB and M16-SUB specifically designed for submarine laundries.
The equipment installed on aircraft carriers provides laundry services for up to 6,000 personnel on a daily basis. During a standard six-month deployment, aircraft carrier laundries will operate 16 to 20 hours per day, six or seven days a week, and process nearly 150,000 pounds of laundry a week. Since deployment schedules may require Naval Ships to remain at sea for sustained periods, it is imperative laundry operations remain at 100 percent capacity. The inability to provide efficient laundry service due to equipment down time has a severe detrimental effect on the morale of the crew. EDRO DynaWash® washer-extractors are predominant on both east and west coast aircraft carriers in addition to amphibious and surface combatants.

EDRO DynaWash® washer-extractors and M-Series tumbler dryers are tough, reliable workhorses for laundries which need to produce a clean wash at lowest cost. Shipboard and Marine models operate with the latest in Human Machine Interface (HMi) technology.
Software-specific operating systems based on EDRO-proprietary ELC washing logic allows for the most intuitive operator interface available, yet providing programming security and managerial reporting for washroom efficiency. The precise function of the controls mean consistent results, while the machine designs save on occupied machine space and water consumption. Several models are available in modular construction to allow for installation in and through tight ship quarters.
Ocean going vessels and offshore operations demand high performing reliable machines. With such prestigious clients as the Carnival Corporation - including the world's most famous cruise liner, Cunard's Queen Mary 2 - cruise ship lines count on the exceptional performance of EDRO DynaWash® washer-extractors.
The overall compact design of the machines, thanks to innovative design techniques, allows for larger-capacity machines in smaller spaces, while our three pocket models best prevent tangling and bundling of bed and table linens.
Numerous commercial vessels and offshore platforms also benefit from the diverse programmability of the machinery controls, and the ozone-cleaning technology to reduce utilities and save on valuable wash water.
