Climeon has successfully passed the SeaTrials for Virgin Voyages first ship, the Scarlet Lady.
At the end of 2017, Climeon passed the Factory Acceptance Test for the first order from Virgin Voyages and Fincantieri. Since then, the modules have been installed onboard Virgin Voyages first ship, the Scarlet Lady. Now another big milestone has been reached as the ship, including the Heat Power modules, has successfully completed the Sea Trials, where the ship is tested at sea for the first time.
– This is a big milestone for Climeon, we have been working towards this goal for many years. I am very proud of all of our employees who have contributed to the installation onboard the Scarlet Lady, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon.
Climeon has been onboard the Scarlet Lady for the first round of sea trials, sailing from Genoa to Marseille, and then back from Marseille to Genoa. The Heat Power modules performed as expected and were approved in the Sea Trials. The first cruise for the Scarlet Lady is scheduled for April 2020.
– We’re thrilled to have completed such a significant milestone with our Sea Trials and have our amazing crew to thank for their passion and tenacity in this achievement. We’re one step closer to getting our Sailors on the Scarlet Lady and can confirm that the Scarlet Lady is running smooth and we’re happy with Climeon’s performance, said Tom McAlpin, Virgin Voyages CEO.
In addition to the Scarlet Lady, Climeon has delivered Heat Power modules to Virgin Voyages next two ships, leading with the Valiant Lady which is currently being built. In April 2019, Climeon received an additional order for Heat Power modules to be delivered in 2021 to the fourth ship Fincantieri is building for Virgin Voyages.
