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

Valued at more than $21.5 million, Kongsberg’s most extensive ‘Full Picture’ delivery for an expedition cruise ship, Innovation, also encompasses the supply and integration of propulsion equipment including the new ELegance azimuth pod system, Bergen engines, stabilizers, 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 the IMO’s forthcoming 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 optimization.
