Wärtsilä to outfit Ponant ice-class cruise ship

A new polar ice-class cruise vessel being built for the France-based operator Ponant at Vard Søviknes, a part of VARD shipbuilding group in Norway, is to be outfitted with a range of Wärtsilä technology systems to drive fuel and emissions optimisation under a new agreement.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Wärtsilä will supply engines and a fuel gas supply system to the LNG-powered vessel, alongside a Nacos Platinum navigation package, which can later be integrated with Eniram’s proactive energy management system. Eniram is a Wärtsilä subsidiary.

The equipment is scheduled to be delivered in 2020, one year before delivery of the cruise vessel. This will be the twelfth ship in Ponant’s fleet of cruise vessels, with the previous eleven all powered by Wärtsilä engines.

“Wärtsilä’s cutting-edge technologies are making a huge contribution to creating cleaner, more efficient, and more environmentally sustainable shipping,” said Glenn Mattas, regional sales director, South Europe & Africa, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.

“This valuable contract is a clear example of this. We are delighted to be supporting Ponant in enabling this cruise ship to meet the highest standards of sustainability.”{/mprestriction}
