Meyer Werft of Papenburg, Germany has selected Metso DNA for the Integrated Alarm, Monitoring and Control System (IAMCS) to Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd's new generation of cruise ships referred to as Project Sunshine. The contract is for three vessels of 167.000 GRT with a capacity for 4180 passengers in double occupancy.

The vessels will be of the latest design with high focus on energy saving and sustainable environmental solutions, both important subjects for Royal Caribbean. The IAMCS will be sized to handle close to 18.000 I/O's within machinery, air-condition and emergency shutdown systems. The management of the diesel electric power plant is an integral part of the Metso DNA system.

Metso said it has supplied automation system components earlier to Royal Caribbean International's Radiance class and Celebrity Cruises Solstice class ships as well as many other cruise projects at Meyer Werft over the years.
