Carrier to Help Create Healthy Homes at Sea
Carrier is collaborating with Storylines on a broad range of solutions to provide comfort, air quality, safety and security solutions on the residential cruise ship MV Narrative. Carrier will provide state of the art HVAC and automation systems that integrate with other shipboard systems and help to deliver healthy, safe, efficient and productive indoor environments – allowing Storylines to meet the revolutionary air quality standards of its Clean Air Program.
"Carrier is among the most reputable HVAC providers in the maritime industry," said Storylines project manager Dr. Paul Read. "The cruise ship industry learned some hard lessons about indoor air quality in the Covid-19 pandemic. As a liveaboard cruise line, we have a unique opportunity to set a new standard so we chose a partner that could help us meet our ambitious goals."
Storylines is also leveraging Carrier’s life safety expertise to deploy leading edge fire safety, security and surveillance solutions on MV Narrative.

These e-Locks feature optimal efficiency and flexibility providing touchless access for credentialed security areas using a secure mobile key on a smartphone.

- Marioff will be providing efficient HI-FOG high pressure water mist sprinklers and fire suppression system. These solutions are optimized for cruise ships and are designed according to IMO Safe Return to Port standards and the Marine Equipment Directive (MED).
