Diesels for New Cruise Vessels


Diesels for New Cruise Vessels

The Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) Ltd., decided in favour of six four-stroke engines of the L58/64 series for diesel-electric propulsion for their very latest luxury liner. The shipyard has now placed an order with MAN B&W Diesel for three medium-speed engines of the 6L58/64 and also of the 7L58/64 series. The 50.7 MW engine sextet for vessel propulsion and power supply on board will be delivered in the spring of 2000.

In the ever active cruise vessel market, two further renowned luxury liners, equipped with MAN B&W medium-speed engines, have recently set sail. In August 1999, the Meyer Werft handed over "Super Star Virgo" to Star Cruises, domiciled in Malaysia. The 76,800 gt luxury liner was the second of a total of four newbuilding orders which the shipowner placed with this shipyard. Each newbuilding is equipped with four 14V48/60 engines for diesel-electric propulsion, the total output per vessel amounting to 58.8 MW.In September 1999, MS "Europa" was taken over by the Hapag Lloyd AG from the Kvaerner Masa Yard. The five-star vessel offering the largest area per passenger world-wide is equipped with diesel-electric propulsion powered by two 7L40/54 and two 8L40/54 four-stroke engines with a total of 21.6 MW
