Zurich, Switzerland – ABB has won orders worth more than $60 million to provide complete power and Azipod ® propulsion systems for two new cruise ships, to be built by Meyer Werft at its shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCL).
The ABB order for the first ship was booked in 2011 and for the second vessel  in the first quarter of 2012.

The new ships are the first vessels in Royal Caribbean’s new class of cruise ships, currently named “Project Sunshine.” The 158,000-gt ships will have a capacity of more than 4,100 passengers. In addition to redesigned spaces to optimize capacity and fuel use while maintaining passenger comfort, RCL and Meyer Werft will incorporate the latest energy efficiency and environmental technologies on the ship.

ABB’s delivery will help the new ships maximize their fuel efficiency, speed and maneuverability, reduce emissions,  as well as provide a reliable power supply to improve the availability of onboard equipment, to help RCL meet its energy efficiency and environmental impact targets.

The vessels are scheduled for delivery to RCL in fall, 2014, and spring, 2015.

ABB will supply complete electrical systems for the new ships; the delivery for each ship includes power generation and distribution systems, thruster motors, and two 20.5 MW propulsion systems, including transformers, drives and two Azipod® XO propulsion units.
