Technology company Rolls-Royce has signed a deal to equip two expeditionary oceanic cruise ships for the Portuguese based cruise company Mystic Cruises.
Rolls-Royce will supply two Bergen, C25:33L8P main engines and a Bergen C25:33L6P auxiliary dual generator for each ship.
The company is also providing the automation and control system, and the complete Promas propulsion system with two CPP propellers integrated with two flap rudders, also steering gears and tunnel thrusters.
The agreement was signed with WestSea Yard in Portugal, part of Martifer Group, which will build the second and third units in the cruise line’s new fleet of eco-friendly expeditionary cruise ships.
The contract value to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine for Mystic Cruises’ 9,300-ton 200-guest expedition vessels is GBP 14 million.
“To reduce our impact, we worked with Rolls-Royce to integrate an ultra-sophisticated hybrid propulsion system that dramatically reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, as well as a dynamic positioning system that allows us to avoid using anchors, thereby protecting the maritime environment,” Mário Ferreira, Mystic Cruises, CEO, said.
