The MPS Emily Brontë is a 5-star passenger ship for luxury Rhine cruises from March to November. Sometimes, the ship may be 3,000 kilometres from here. The client wanted to have the ship managed remotely, which is a feature of Priva. This makes it possible to act fast if there any problems with the climate installation.
The MPS Emily Brontë is 136 metres long, 13 metres wide and accommodates 169 passengers and 44 crew members. The ship has 6 different types of passenger cabins, a gift shop, spa & wellness, restaurant and lounge bar on board.
The MPS has two control boxes with Priva Blue ID, which regulate the climate in the restaurant and the air purification of all the passenger cabins. The control system can be operated remotely, so that maintenance engineers can always monitor the situation too. Errors are already visible before the guests on board are aware of anything. This makes it possible to investigate the problem in time and take rapid action.
Ship different from a building?
Priva partner Klimaatservice has a lot of experience with working on and around a ship. The company used to install the right control technology on more than 300 river cruise ships. "In terms of technology, it's not very different from a building," says Jacques van der Hoest from Klimaatservice Holland. "But the atmosphere during such a building project is very different. A regular group of people usually build the ships, so they know each other well. You can trust each other, and everyone is very helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed."
