The contract includes a platform for providing the support required for the maintenance and efficient operation of the waste treatment facilities on board. The strictest environmental regulations will be adhered to, it says.

Wärtsilä minimizes risk of failure

The waste treatment systems on board cruise ships must be able to handle large volumes of waste on a daily basis. Any downtime of such systems can have a detrimental effect and their operational safety is crucial. The signing of this service contract will further reduce the risk of system failures and further increase operational safety. In addition, the contract provides predictability of maintenance costs for the series of vessels covered.

“We are very familiar with the services Wärtsilä Water and Waste can offer and the added value they bring to our business. This latest agreement strengthens our cooperation. It will also help Carnival Corporation to further increase the efficiency and environmental sustainability of our operations,” commented Remco Buis, Senior Vice President of Maritime, Port Strategy and Operations at Carnival Corporation.

Contract covers 13 cruise ships

The contract covers 13 Princess Line ships, eight Holland America Line ships, seven Seabourn Cruises ships and three P&O Australia ships. While Wärtsilä Water and Waste and Carnival Corporation have previously signed similar agreements, the fleet of 31 ships covered by this contract is the largest to date. The full scope of the contract includes health checks, service visits, spare parts, remote technical support and contract management services.
