MAN Engines for New Cruise Ships

MAN has seen 2014 off to a successful start and received a large number of new major orders which include marine engines designed for new cruise ships.

Supplying marine diesel engines for the cruise industry traditionally brings prestige. Thanks to the boom in cruises, more and more ships are being built which is significantly pushing up demand for efficient and especially eco-friendly engines in this segment.

MAN Diesel & Turbo is to supply Fincantieri Navali Italiani S.p.A.,one of the world’s leading shipyards for cruise ships, with eight engines for the diesel-electric propulsion system of two new cruise ships. Both of the new ships are being built for the shipper Viking Ocean Cruises. With 472 cabins and a capacity to transport 944 passengers, the ships are part of the segment for small super luxury liners. MAN will deliver the engines together with Alfa Laval, which provides the exhaust gas cleaning systems to dispose of sulfur oxide. They wash over 98 percent of the sulfur oxide out from the ship’s emis-sions.

The first ship in the next ship generation of the US cruise operator Carnival Cruise Lines is significantly larger: it has space for around 5,000 passengers. The Miami-based shipper has commissioned MAN Diesel & Turbo to supply five large-bore diesel engines for the diesel-electric propulsion system. Together, the units deliver power of 62,400 kW (approx. 84,400 horsepower). The propulsion solution is perfectly designed for the high safety and environmental stand-ards of the cruise industry. The ship will also be built at Fincantieri in Italy.
