MAN Diesel Power for NCL Cruise Ships

Tuesday, September 18, 2007
On September 15, the Norwegian Gem will be transported from the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg. The latest luxury liner in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet will be powered by five 12V48/60B engines from MAN Diesel, the Augsburg-based large-bore diesel engine specialist. The engines' combined output is 97,800 hp.

In 2004, MAN Diesel also supplied five engines for the liner's sister ship Norwegian Jewel. In a field trial in May 2007, one of the engines was converted to common rail technology during the crossing from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. With the two new ship orders from Celebrity Cruises and DCL, common rail technology is already becoming the standard. In total, the cruise sector currently makes up around 10 percent of the overall engine capacity (in kW) sold by the MAN Diesel Marine Medium Speed business unit. MAN Diesel has a 15 percent share of the cruise ship market. In the cruise sector, the company has supplied a total of 20 engines worth $62.4m to the Meyer shipyard alone in the last four years.
