France-based shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique has developed a solutions and services portfolio named Atlantique + and a new version of its Silsenseas cruise ship, both of which will be demonstrated at Seatrade Cruise Global in Miami, Florida from 8-11 April.

Building on the shipyard’s long experience of servicing, maintaining and modernising cruise ships throughout their lifecycle, the Atlantique + product portfolio offers efficiency solutions in three areas: energy/environment, operations and guest experience.

Cruise operators can use the Atlantique + Ecorizon services to significantly reduce energy use and the environmental impact of their ships via a two-step process. First, the shipyard carries out an extensive energy efficiency assessment and then it monitors energy efficiency on a weekly basis.

The Atlantique + operations services will help operators to improve navigation, safety and maintenance, while the guest experience services are designed to offer added-value infrastructure solutions for cabins, sun decks and public spaces.

Chantiers de l’Atlantique has also developed a new version of its hybrid cruise ship Silenseas +, which was first introduced at Seatrade Cruise Global in 2018 and uses both the shipyard’s proprietary Solid Sail system and dual-fuel engines for propulsion. At this year’s event, the shipyard will present two versions of the ship: Silenseas 190 and Silensea 210. The first is a 190-metre-long, seven-deck-high ship that can accommodate 300 passengers, while the latter is a 210-metre-long vessel with eight decks that can carry up to 300 passengers. Both have large sails and can cruise without emissions when winds are above 15 knots.
