Tracesafe has announced a two-year wearable technology agreement with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines for the company’s fleet of cruise ships.

The partnership will see TraceSafe’s intelligent wearable technology initially deployed on three of Fred Olsen’s ships: Borealis, Balmoral, and Bolette. With over 15 million contacts per day, TraceSafe’s cloud processing can facilitate contact tracing for even the world’s largest enterprise.

The wearable technology, which is built with low energy connectivity, is fully customisable. Guests onboard cruise liners will use the technology for contact tracing, for payment or entry passes, as a room key, and for room capacity management.

“By partnering with TraceSafe, we are able to ensure our guests have the safest possible return to cruising. This investment in innovative technology also ensures we continue to enhance the future of cruise safety for our guests,” said Damon Impett, director of IT with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

“Our solution is uniquely designed to meet even the most complex of guidelines, such as contact tracing 15 minutes accumulative in any 24 hour period,” said Susanne MacKillop, vice president sales at TraceSafe. “Our goal is to provide seamless guest experiences -- all while meeting the health and safety requirements needed for cruise lines as they return to sailing.”
