Wärtsilä to Optimise Carnival’s Engine Room Performance

Wärtsilä to Optimise Carnival's Engine Room Performance

Finnish engineering company Wärtsilä and Miami-based cruise company Carnival Corporation have partnered to optimise engine room operations aboard Carnival’s fleet of 101 ships across its nine global brands.

Wärtsilä’s solutions will be tested in pilot projects in which Wärtsilä’s technologies and systems will be installed on several of Carnival Corporation’s vessels. The technologies and systems include engine control and monitoring systems and safety and fuel efficiency packages as well as Wärtsilä’s Asset Performance Optimisation Solution.

Wärtsilä’s Asset Performance Optimisation Solution maximises vessel performance and ensures that systems are operating at their full capabilities, increasing predictability of maintenance needs and fuel management. The fuel engine package is designed to significantly contribute to reducing fuel consumption.

”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.

Wärtsilä Asset Performance Optimisation Solution provides users with guidance on obtaining optimal performance from Wärtsilä engines and makes recommendations on how to rectify potential issues. While the service aims to optimise performance, it also finds deviations from normal operating parameters of the engines and equipment. Engine fault sources and emerging operational problems can be rectified before they occur.
