Case Study: New Build

The Norwegian Joy will enter service in June 2017 following her build at the Meyer Werft yard in Pappenburg.  Silverstream worked closely with the yard during the 2.5 year build programme to supply and install the Silverstream® System.  The air release units were fabricated off- site then welded into the double hull and the compressors were supplied by Atlas Copco and linked to the Wärtsilä automation system.  Silverstream will be present during the sea trials to provide training and assistance to the crew prior to the handover of the vessel.  The Norwegian Joy is the first cruise ship in the world to save fuel with the Silverstream® System.
