The project in brief

Together with one of our partners for marine systems in Italy, Ship Systems SRL, we have provided the fire protection for the newly extended “Star Class” cruise ship, Star Breeze, which is operated by Windstar Cruises. The vessel recently underwent an extensive refurbishment and modernization and was lengthened by 26 meters. A new mid-section was inserted to the ship to make room for 50 more staterooms, specialty restaurants, a new pool area and more.




With the new section, the ship has increased the accommodation capacity from 212 to 312 passengers.

Star Breeze’s two sister ships, Star Legend and Star Pride, will be undergoing the same refurbishment and lengthening, which is expected to be completed in 2021.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

The VID Fire-Kill low pressure watermist systems offer:

  • A reliable and effective solution
  • Semi-concealed nozzles that blend in with the exclusive design and interior of the ship
  • Low water pressures and water flow
  • Fire protection systems that are safe for people and the environment


Some specifics

The VID Fire-Kill low pressure watermist OH-Neptun nozzles was installed in the ship’s accommodation areas and the Fire-Kill open nozzle Etna system was installed for galley duct protection.

The OH system is designed with our DnVGL MED-B approved nozzles in accordance with IMO MSC Circ. 265
