"Silverstream Technologies today announced that Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise vacation company, has successfully retrofitted the Silverstream System air lubrication technology, onto the Diamond Princess from its Princess Cruises brand.

The system has been in operation since June 2017, reducing fuel consumption and related CO2 emissions. It recently completed its final contract trials, which demonstrated that the original performance expectations were exceeded with net efficiency improvements of over 5% at the design service speed, verified by Lloyd’s Register."
