Royal Caribbean Cruises extends vessel service deal with Wärtsilä

Wärtsilä will monitor real time engine data from Royal Caribbean Cruises’ vessels Wärtsilä will monitor real time engine data from Royal Caribbean Cruises’ vessels

Wärtsilä and Royal Caribbean Cruises have extended their long-term service agreement to the year 2028, a package which includes remote analysis of real time engine data from Royal Caribbean Cruises’ vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The original agreement, signed in 2013, spanned 10 years, and includes optimisation of maintenance efficiency through improved Turbocharger maintenance, provision of OEM spare parts, workshop services and preferred technical assistance for 46 Royal Caribbean Cruises’ ships.

This new agreement covers a total of 196 engines across the fleet, the majority of which are installed on ships sailing in the Caribbean and Europe.

The majority of the fleet is also equipped with Wärtsilä’s condition monitoring technology, which transmits real-time information about engine condition to a Wärtsilä Expertise Centre for analysis. This data is then used to manage predictive maintenance planning and optimisation of operations.

“When it comes to maintenance planning and operations, the marine and cruise industry is moving more and more toward long-term partnerships,” said Sean Carey, service unit director North America, Wärtsilä Services.

“This is a natural direction, as it enables a holistic approach to vessel maintenance. A partner that understands the installation and optimises their condition throughout their lifecycle can help Royal Caribbean to enhance their business. Close cooperation is essential in such partnerships.”{/mprestriction}
