Interview with Krystian Kołakowski – ADA Program Manager, Trident BMC

Passed in 1990 and reformed over the years, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has radically improved the lives of people with disabilities. Because the Act also applies to cruises, the term ADA on board a cruise ship includes any modifications necessary to ensure that people with disabilities can enjoy their voyage as much as any other passenger. Trident BMC has a specialized team that creates the necessary outfits for newbuilds and modernizations; the team works worldwide. We interviewed Krystian Kolakowski, our project manager in charge of ADA.

Q: Trident has been involved in many ADA interior upgrades, could you please explain us what an ADA is?

A: An ADA interior upgrade project on a cruise ship involves modifying the ship’s interior spaces to make them more accessible to individuals with disabilities. This could include installing wheelchair ramps, widening doorways, adding grab bars and handrails, and modifying cabin layouts to accommodate wheelchair users. 

Q: Why is it important to have ADA upgrades on a cruise ship?

A: Cruise ships are popular vacation destinations for people of all ages and abilities. It’s important that everyone, regardless of their physical abilities, can enjoy all the amenities and experiences that a cruise has to offer. ADA upgrades ensure that individuals with disabilities can navigate the ship safely and comfortably, and have access to all the same facilities and activities as other passengers.

Q: What are some of the challenges involved in ADA interior upgrade projects on cruise ships?

A: There are several challenges to consider when undertaking an ADA interior upgrade project on a cruise ship. One of the main challenges is working within the constraints of the ship’s existing infrastructure, which can be complex and difficult to modify. Additionally, there are strict regulations and guidelines governing accessibility on cruise ships, and it’s important to ensure that all modifications are compliant with these standards.

Q: Are there any upcoming ADA interior upgrade projects that Trident BMC is working on?

A: Yes, we have several ADA interior upgrade projects currently in the works with different cruise lines, including a major renovation of a large cruise ship’s public spaces and cabins to improve accessibility for individuals with disabilities.


Carnival Celebration

Carnival Celebration – large newbuilding project completed

Trident BMC LLC has completed a large project on the newbuilding Carnival Celebration cruise vessel. It has been completed with the highest standards, in record time, and ready for the 50th Anniversary of the Carnival Cruise Line! We thank Meyer Turku, and, of course, Carnival Cruise Line for trusting us. Trident is a big family; in Europe, the Italian and Polish branches are delivering top-quality services for cruise newbuilds, the most demanding shipping sector, which is why the building of cruises continues in Europe.

What exactly did we deliver? In this project, carried out by Meyer Turku from Finland, one of the largest shipyards in Europe, we built and furnished several areas of the ship:

?Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse Terrace Bar,
?Carnivale Restaurant (American Table Restaurant),
?Emeril’s Bistro,
?Carnival Kitchen,
?Dreams Studio,
?Decorative Glass Staircase,
?Public restrooms,
?Esplanade corridors.
?Hotel Director’s Office
?Technical Crew Corridor

Our scope of supply included engineering, background outfitting (electrical, piping, HVAC), fabrication of furniture and bar structures, and outfitting. The total area of our scope exceeded 1,800 sqm and the project execution time was 20 months after the contract signature.

Carnival Celebration is a unique vessel. With 180,000 GT, it will become the largest ship in Carnival’s fleet. And it is also unique because, unlike its sister ship, Mardi Gras, it will have the word Carnival before Celebration to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the company. The ship belongs to the so-called Excel class and, as Mardi Grass, will also be powered by LNG.

The cruise has already begun its 14-day transatlantic voyage from London (Southampton) to its homeport of PortMiami. And for a new ship, a new terminal: Carnival Celebration will arrive at a redesigned Terminal F at PortMiami. The cruise will have its inaugural sailing from Miami on November 21st.

We want to thank Meyer Turku Team, Carnival Cruise Line Nb Team, and all our technicians for their effort, support, and engagement in this project.

Below, look at some pictures of the work we have done!

And one final word: If you will visit the Cruise Ship Interiors Expo in London later this month (November 30th-December 1st), stop at our stand (718) and allow us to share our experience on furnishing some of the most incredible cruises sailing around the corners of the sea.

Shore-to-Ship solution

C-AMP 7500D Shore Power

Ship-to-shore connection allows to shut down the ship’s auxiliary engines during port staying. Land-based sources provide all needed energy.
The main achieved benefits are no fuel consumption, reduced GHG and air-polluting emissions, reduced noise level, and reduced running hours and maintenance on auxiliary engines. It’s also an important step toward shipping decarbonization, improving the Carbon Intensity Index (CII).

We are proud to introduce our dedicated shore power solution C-AMP 7500D. Don’t hesitate to contact us at to learn how our turnkey, tailor-made shore-power solution can be easily integrated with your vessels.

Scrubber system installation on Cruise Ship

Trident BMC, with more than 230 scrubber towers installations completed, continues to support its customers with implementation of EGCS on merchant and cruise ships. The increasing prices of marine fuels, and wider price spread, makes the shipowners with scrubbers already installed in a good position.
Currently our team of technicians deployed in Persian Gulf, is coming to the end of the installation of another Exhaust Gas Cleaning System on a cruise vessel, consisting of three scrubber towers. Due to limited access, all main components and scrubber towers are being transported into the chimney in small elements for final assembling. Trident BMC is continuing to grow its expertise in various sustainable technologies and is available to support with your implementation, successfully and with minimized downtime.

Design and supply of the complete HVAC-system on Global Mercy

We are happy and proud to have contributed with the design and supply of the complete HVAC-system including control and automation onboard the world’s largest civilian hospital ship “Global Mercy”.
Our scope of supply includes HVAC and Automation Engineering and System design, equipment delivery as well as commissioning of the systems. The equipment delivery includes 40+ Air Handling Units, 4 Chillers (2 in operation + 2 stand-by) with cooling capacity of around 2,5 MW each for the chilled water system, Provision Refrigeration Plant, 100+ fans, around 20 Fan Coil Units, around 15 Self Contained Units, Heating & Cooling coils, 500+ Air Terminal Devices, 150+ dampers, Frequency Converters, Heat exchangers, Pumps, Valves, Electrical Starters and field instrumentation.
The requirements for the HVAC-system are at highest level in general as the Global Mercy mainly will be operating in very demanding surroundings and docked in harbors for long periods. A special challenge worth to mention is the conditioning of the 6 fully equipped operation theaters. In the operation theaters the air distribution must be designed so that the fresh air, which is filtered by HEPA filters, passes the operation area without getting mixed with contaminated air. Each operating theater is furthermore served by a dedicated AHU and the temperature is controlled to be kept between +19 and +22°C.
The Global Mercy will soon join the current flagship Africa Mercy, more than doubling the impact of volunteers and services provided by the charity. For more information about Mercy Ships, updates on Global Mercy or how to volunteer or donate, please visit:

The 174-meter, 37,000-ton ship will have six operating rooms and house over 600 volunteers from around the globe representing many disciplines including surgeons, maritime crew, cooks, teachers, electricians, the host staff and more. The ship will also feature a 682-seat auditorium, student academy, gymnasium, pool, café, shop and library – all of which have been designed to accommodate up to 950 crew onboard when docked in port.
