The technology group Wärtsilä is utilising its strong in-house capabilities to create further advances in operational efficiency and safety for ship owners and operators. The latest in the company’s drive towards harnessing innovative and creative technologies to build more sustainable and cost-efficient shipping took place in a successful testing programme onboard the cruise ship ‘Costa Atlantica’, belonging to Carnival’s Costa Crociere fleet. The testing enabled the crew to have better understanding of the ship’s trim, thereby enhancing both safety and efficiency. This has been made possible through the combined use of Wärtsilä’s Eniram Trim and Nacos Platinum systems.
