Chantiers de l’Atlantique offers a set of services and solutions with Atlantique+®, and presents a new version of its innovative sailing cruise ship, Silenseas+

Chantiers de l’Atlantique, one of the largest cruise ship builders worldwide, announces at Seatrade Cruise Global the launch of a new set of services, solutions and systems, marketed under the name of Atlantique +, which aims at bringing new added value to customers.

Based on a long time experience in servicing, maintenance and modernization of cruise ships all along their life cycle, Atlantique +®includes innovative and efficient solutions in three main areas: Energy/Environment, Operations, and Guest experience.

In the area of Energy/Environment, Chantiers de l’Atlantique through its Atlantique +® Ecorizon® services allow cruise ship operators to achieve significant energy savings and improve the environmental footprint of their ships in operation.

These services use a two-step process: an Energy efficiency assessment followed by a weekly Energy efficiency monitoring. The operators may also include coaching in the service provision, to make the best use of it. As a matter of fact, Chantiers de l’Atlantique’s Ecorizon® experts have already helped their customers achieving 16% average fuel savings in 2018 on their fleets.

Another example of innovative technology used to reduce dramatically both energy consumption and emissions is given by Solid Sail, a performing, foldable, full composite sail, thus robust and easy to manoeuvre. This solution, developed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique, is currently tested with probing results on the Ponant cruise ship, from Compagnie du Ponant.

In the area of Operations, Atlantique +® offers smart services aimed at improving conditions of navigation, safety and maintenance. In the area of Guest experience, it proposes innovative added value infrastructure solutions for cabins, sun decks and public spaces. Chantiers de l’Atlantique also features on its booth a new version of its innovative sailing cruise ship, named Silenseas+.

Introduced last year at Seatrade Cruise Global, Silenseas® is a hybrid cruise ship which uses both sailing propulsion, thanks to the Solid Sail system * and dual-fuel engines.

Chantiers de l’Atlantique comes back this year with Silenseas +, an evolution of the concept, presenting two versions of the ship, Silenseas 190 (7-deck, 300-pax, 190 m long) and Silenseas 210 (8-deck, 300-pax, 210 m long). Both equipped of a sail area of 4.350 m2, the vessels can cruise without emissions, under wind speeds above 15 knots.
