SeaEscape, one of Florida's lead- ers in one-day cruising, chose Wart- sila Diesel to supply three diesel generating sets to repower one of its cruise ships.
The cruise vessel M/V Scandinav- ian Sun cruises daily between
Miami and Freeport in the Baha- mas. The original power plant for this vessel consisted of three gener- ating sets of 1,180 bhp each. In July 1988, one of these existing generat- ing sets was replaced with a Wartsi- la Vasa 6R22 with an output of 1,180 bhp at a speed of 900 rpm.
The refitting work was completed in a fixed time period by Wartsila Die- sel personnel without taking the

On Emergency Medical/
National Marine Health Systems (NMHS) of Baltimore, Md., pro- vides emergency medical/advanced life support consultation to individ- uals on land, sea or air through a network of leading university trau- ma centers.
When you are hundreds of miles out at sea and a passenger or crew- man becomes injured or ill, there are not too many alternatives. The ship can return to port, call the Coast
Guard for assistance or, should it be a cruise ship, hope the ship's doctor can treat the patient.
National Marine Health Systems is a nationwide network of some of the best university level one and lev- el two trauma centers and other spe- cialty care facilities. It provides comprehensive consultation in less than two minutes from initial con- tact anywhere in the world. NMHS is complemented by a global system of select hospitals, designated to receive ill and injured patients.
Transport of the patient is accom- plished through an international medical transportation network (government, public and private sectors), coordinated through Na- tional Marine Health Systems.
June, 1989 vessel out of service. The other two engines will be installed at approxi- mately one-year intervals.
The selection of diesel generating sets for this repowering project was based on good overall economy of the Wartsila Vasa engines, includ- ing low fuel oil and low lube oil and spare parts consumption. Another important factor was the capability of the Wartsila Vasa engines to cope with any type of fuel on the market, from diesel oil to the lowest grade heavy fuels.

NMHS is reportedly the largest emergency medical/trauma consul- tation system in the world.
Through its central communica- tions and switching center in Balti- more, National Marine places the caller directly online with the physi- cian in less than two minutes of con- tact. Consultation is done in almost any spoken language (interpreters are also available to participate in the incident in less than two min- utes). There are a multitude of ways to communicate whether you are at sea, on land or in the air, from any- where in the world.
NMHS has lent assistance to sea- men of Yugoslavia, Ecuador and other countries. It served as a re- source for those in the wake of Hur- ricane Gilbert; was placed on alert for the crews it the Yellowstone fire, and for other recent maritime trage- dies. In the near future, travelers from the U.S. will be able to access
NMHS from their cruise ship or their foreign hotel room. National
Marine will provide immediate con- sultation that will address the needs of those suffering minor injuries and illnesses, as well as the most serious multi-system trauma.
