The Cruise Industry has been showing a positive trend in passengers during the last decade, bringing strong interests in the shipbuilding sector of cruise ships. The number of new built Ships has increased as well as the retrofit activity of existing ships, built in the nineties. Requirements in construction becoming more stringent in terms of safety and comfort for passengers.
The main specification for Cruise Ships are driven by IMO rules with special attention to SOLAS and MARPOL. Ship owners are driving specification mainly with aim of optimisation of Hotel, Leisure and Entertainment facilities on board, to become increasingly competitive to attract passengers. Therefore, noise requirement for increasing privacy in cabins is a characteristics that is affecting specification of both new buildings but mostly renovation of existing ships.
The value that Promat can provide to Cruise Ship customers is in the low weight & volume performance of their Products, from the Fire Protection solutions, that can achieve up to 30% of weight saving, to the Interiors and Furniture with non combustible core, where savings up to 70% can be expected.
Numerical simulation tools, both in alternative design of Fire Safety and Acoustic, can help the designer at the very early stage in order to optimise space and comfort. Improvement of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) can also be a goal to achieve by the adoption of Promat Integrated solutions.
