MV Werften, a group of three of the largest shipyards in Germany, has ordered type 48/60CR engines for two Global Class cruise ships being built for Genting Hong Kong’s Star Cruises brand.

German marine propulsion producer MAN Diesel & Turbo will equip each of the 200,000 gross ton vessels with six engines with a combined output of 96,000 kW.

The ocean-going giants, which will operate in China and all over Asia, are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021.

Genting Hong Kong recently launched its new cruise line brand Dream Cruises with two 150,000 gross ton ships equipped with MAN engines. The first vessel, the Genting Dream, was delivered in mid-October, while the second cruise ship, the World Dream, is set to join its owner in late 2017.

“The cruise business is globally experiencing strong growth. This has led to very long lead times of up to ten years for new large cruise ships, since only few shipyards are specialized in the very challenging construction process of cruise ships. We want to change this by having earlier delivery and incorporate the latest design as the ships are being built,” Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Chairman and CEO of the Genting corporation, said.
