Helsinki-based NAPA, provider of maritime software, services and data analysis, announced a comprehensive service and product agreement extension with Carnival Corp. & plc.

Loading Computer and CSMART training

This covers comprehensive services for the on-board NAPA Loading Computers, training certification for Carnival’s CSMART training facility and a framework agreement for future deployments of NAPA solutions.

Carnival’s commitment to the highest performance standards for its ships and safety for its passengers and crew has led to its early adoption of solutions such as NAPA’s electronic logbooks, voyage reporting and flooding decision support systems. These technologies, and numerous others, have been developed in close cooperation with Carnival over a working partnership that has spanned more than 15 years.

Today, every ship in the Carnival Corp. fleet has NAPA technology solutions that help monitor risks in real time and improve decision making in an emergency.

NAPA Emergency Computer

One of the most important advances in NAPA and Carnival’s cooperation has been the development of the NAPA Emergency Computer to meet the need to have a precise, simple and robust on-board decision support system for flooding incidents that exceeds the requirements of the regulations. NAPA Emergency Computer has been installed on all Carnival newbuilds since 2016 and installations on selected existing ships started last year with Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess and Regal Princess.

An agreement has also been signed to refit Carnival Splendor and Carnival Breeze with NAPA Emergency Computer.

'Stability management is a core component of passenger vessel operations,' said Mikko Forss, Americas sales director for NAPA. 'Solutions such as the NAPA Loading Computer are approved by all major class societies and together with NAPA Emergency Computer they provide unrivaled decision support capabilities to ensure safe operations.'
