Eaton has secured a contract to supply cruise ship UPSs to two of Meyer Werft's newbuilds.
Eaton’s uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) will provide secure, reliable power for essential systems aboard two of the German shipbuilder's cruise ships currently under construction for Star Cruises, a leading cruise line in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Eaton UPSs, which have power ratings from 20 to 160kVA will be used to protect on-board systems including safety and cruising applications; such as bridge equipment, ship automation systems, propulsion systems and communications equipment. The units can also help provide a reliable power supply for the leisure activities available on modern cruise ships including casinos, Broadway-style theatres, beauty and spa areas and golf simulators.
“Meyer Werft is one of the most successful and creative shipbuilders when it comes to cruise vessels, leading the way with innovative and environmentally friendly ships,” said Oscar Rivella, Eaton segment manager Marine & Offshore Industries.
From its shipyard in Papenburg on the River Ems, Meyer Werft has delivered 37 luxury liners to customers all over the world, the latest being Quantum of the Seas.
