Carnival Corp is to adopt Wärtsilä’s asset performance optimisiation solution across its fleet under a new partnership that will allow the power and automation company to test new technologies on the cruise conglomerate’s vessels.

Technologies and systems to be installed include engine control and monitoring systems and safety and fuel efficiency packages as well as the asset performance optimisation solution, which Wärtsilä said ensures that systems are operating at their full capabilities, increasing predictability of maintenance needs and fuel management. The fuel engine package is designed to contribute to reducing fuel consumption.
 
Bill Burke, chief maritime officer, Carnival Corporation said: "Since last summer, teams from Carnival Corp and Wärtsilä have met regularly to ensure that each of these solutions adds value to the company's fleet. 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."
 
"We have focused on finding an agile and mutually beneficial way of cooperating and establishing a structure that drives performance in both organisations," added Tomas Hakala, vice president, services, Wärtsilä. "The valuable insights that we are gaining can also be further utilised with other product families and vessels."

Carnival Corp’s fleet encompasses 101 vessels across nine cruise brands.
