Seabourn cruise vessels to be outfitted by Wärtsilä

Wärtsilä is to supply two new cruise vessels being built for US-based Seabourn Cruise Line with a range of navigation, automation and sensor systems, as well as consoles for the bridge and engine control room, including a video wall.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ships are to be built at the Fincantieri yard in Italy. The 'Seabourn Encore' is already under construction and the 'Seabourn Ovation' is scheduled to join the Seabourn fleet in 2018.

The delivery will include the Wärtsilä Nacos Platinum set-up, which integrates all navigation and automation controls into a single system that enables the vessel to be navigated, controlled, and monitored from various onboard positions.

The system uses multi-functional work stations that display radar, ECDIS and conning information, as well as offering access to automatic steering and voyage planning operations.

Additionally, and on a similar product platform, a Wärtsilä Valmatic Platinum integrated automation system will be added to control all related onboard machinery, with added capabilities for vessel power management.

A dedicated communications network connected to multi-purpose work stations in the engine control room and on the bridge will be included for management of these systems.

“Modern cruise vessels are highly complex with unique operational requirements and Wärtsilä has developed its technologies accordingly to meet these demanding requirements. We are, therefore, extremely pleased to have been once again chosen to provide our state-of-the-art systems for an important cruise vessel operator,” said Maik Stoevhase, director, automation, navigation and control, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.{/mprestriction}
