Wärtsilä and Carnival Corporation are to work together on a series of pilot projects to test Wärtsilä’s technologies and services on board Carnival vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Testing will take place across several ships from Carnival’s 101-strong fleet, and will include engine control and monitoring systems, as well as safety and fuel efficiency packages and Wärtsilä's Asset Performance Optimisation Solution.

"Since last summer, teams from Carnival Corporation and Wärtsilä have met regularly to ensure that each of these solutions adds value to the company's fleet," said Bill Burke, chief maritime officer, Carnival Corporation.

"Ultimately, our goal is to continuously improve our operations in order to accomplish our number-one priority - providing safe and comfortable voyages for our guests, along with a great vacation experience."

According to Wärtsilä, the Asset Performance Optimisation Solution is designed to help manage its engines and deliver optimal performance, while at the same time detecting deviations from normal operating parameters and identifying potential faults before they occur.

"We believe this is the beginning of a close and fruitful relationship between Carnival Corporation and Wärtsilä,” said Tomas Hakala, vice president, Services, Wärtsilä. 

“The valuable insights that we are gaining can also be further utilised with other product families and vessels."{/mprestriction}
