Carnival Corporation and NAPA have announced a comprehensive service and product agreement extension covering Onboard NAPA Loading Computers, training certification for Carnival’s CSMART training facility, and a framework agreement for future deployments of NAPA solutions.
Carnival has already adopted many of NAPA’s solutions such as electronic logbooks, voyage reporting, and flooding decision support systems, which have been developed in close co-operation with Carnival over a 15 year partnership.
One of the most important advances in NAPA and Carnival’s cooperation has been the development of the NAPA Emergency Computer to meet the need to have a precise, simple, and robust onboard decision support system for flooding incidents that exceeds the requirements of the regulations. NAPA Emergency Computer has been installed on all Carnival newbuilds since 2016 and installations to selected existing ships started last year with Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess and Regal Princess. An agreement has also been signed to refit Carnival Splendor and Carnival Breeze with NAPA Emergency Computer.
Mikko Forss, Americas sales director for NAPA, commented: “Stability management is a core component of passenger vessel operations. Solutions such as the NAPA Loading Computer are approved by all major class societies and together with NAPA Emergency Computer they provide unrivalled decision support capabilities to ensure safe operations.”
