Navis NavDP 4000 Installed on Mein Schiff 3

Recently completed sea trials by the 99,430 gross tons cruise ship Mein Schiff 3 have confirmed the high performance of Navis Engineering’s dynamic positioning (DP) control system, Navis Nav DP4000.

Designed and constructed for TUI Cruises by STX Shipyard in Turku, Finland and delivered in May this year, the 294m long and 36m wide Mein Schiff 3 is a sophisticated and highly innovative cruise ship operating in the German premium class cruise market.

The vessel incorporates a number of eco-friendly features, with particular emphasis on energy efficiency. This means Mein Schiff 3 consumes around 30% less energy compared with cruise ships of similar sizes.
