Incorporating Clean Shipping International

FULL EQUIPMENT PACKAGE FOR EXPEDITION CRUISE NEWBUILD

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 

Kongsberg has signed a contract with Damen Shipyards in the Netherlands for the delivery of a fully integrated Kongsberg Maritime solution to a new expedition cruise ship ordered by the SeaDream Yacht Club cruise line.

Valued at more than NOK 190 million, Kongsberg’s most extensive ‘Full Picture’ delivery for the cruise ship, Innovation, encompasses the supply and integration of propulsion equipment including the new ELegance azimuth pod system, Bergen engines, stabilisers, bridge and automation systems, accompanied by a comprehensive electrical, navigation and hybrid technology package. Delivery is expected to be accomplished in the second quarter of 2020, with the engineering and construction phases taking an estimated two years to complete.

The ship will be fully compliant with IMO 2020 emission rules and regulations. An energy consumption and analysis system based on Kongsberg’s digital platform will provide tools for detailed monitoring and energy optimisation.

“Both Damen and SeaDream are synonymous with peerless quality, attention to detail and environmentally-conscious principles,” said Egil Haugsdal, President, Kongsberg Maritime, “The Full Picture portfolio offers the most diverse mix of technology, engineering and digital solutions. When applied to an integrated delivery for the Innovation, it will enable highly efficient operations regardless of location and conditions. With KM’s expertise in energy management systems and fuel-saving technology, this delivery not only raises the bar for sustainability in the cruise sector, but also represents a positive strategic step as our first expedition cruise contract with full scope for Kongsberg Maritime.”
