Wärtsilä has received an order to power the new cruise vessel of Carnival Corporation, USA carrying the preliminary name Carnival Dream 3. The vessel will be built by the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard in Italy and its launch is scheduled for August 2011. Carnival Dream 3 will enter service in the spring of 2012. Wärtsilä's scope of supply includes six Wärtsilä 46 engines.
 
"Wärtsilä and Carnival Corporation have been cooperating for many years and a number of Carnival Cruise vessels carry our propulsion solutions. Reliability is of prime importance in the cruise industry and Wärtsilä's leading position in the marine industry was a key factor in winning this order. In addition to supplying equipment, the contract includes commissioning of the engines. Members of the vessel's crew will also receive annual training on our premises," said Mr Carl-Henrik Björk, Vice President, Cruise & Ferry, Wärtsilä Ship Power.
 
The 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 46 engines with diesel-electric configuration have a rated output of 12600 kW at 514 rpm each. The electrical power generated will be used for propulsion, for bow and stern thrusters, air conditioning, lighting and auxiliary services. Carnival Dream 3 will sail world-wide, mainly in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Alaska. To protect the environment by reducing emissions in vulnerable sea areas, the vessel has been designed to also operate on light fuel oil.
 
Able to carry up to 3690 passengers, the new 130,000-ton cruise vessel will have an overall length of about 1,004 ft, a breadth of 121.3 ft and a maximum draught of 27.9 ft. The deadweight at a draught of 26.9 ft will be some 10,500 tons.
