Metso DNA has secured a contract from German shipbuilder Meyer Werft to supply integrated alarm, monitoring and control systems (IAMCS) to be equipped on Royal Caribbean Cruises’ new generation of cruise ships.

Under the deal, Metso’s IAMCS will be installed on three Quantum-class ships, which will each have a length of 348m, width of 136m, depth of 8.5m and gross tonnage capacity of 167,800t.

Each vessel will feature 16 decks and will be capable of carrying 4,180 people in a double occupancy basis in the 2,090 staterooms.

Metso’s IAMCS will be designed to manage about 18,000 I/O’s within machinery, air-conditioning and emergency shutdown systems, while the management of the diesel electric power plant is an integral part of the system.

The company’s marine automation systems are designed for vessel types such as crude oil carriers, passenger ferries, cruise ships, offshore supply as well as oil and gas processing vessels.

Royal Caribbean’s first Quantum-class cruise vessel, Quantum of the Seas, is currently under construction at Meyer Werft’s Papenburg shipyard in Germany and is scheduled to be delivered in November 2014.

The second cruise vessel, Anthem of the Seas, is scheduled for delivery in early 2015.
