The KSB Group located in Frankenthal, Germany, has supplied 70 pumps and around 700 butterfly valves to the new cruise ship Europa 2 run by Hamburg-based cruise ship organizer, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. The pumps’ spectrum of applications is varied and ranges from cooling the drives in the submerged pods to transporting seawater in ballast systems, supplying fire-fighting systems and handling fresh water, service water, waste water and sewage.

All pumps are either manufactured from seawater-resistant bronze alloys or stainless steel. The drive ratings range from 0.37-75 kW. The pumps are driven by two-pole or four-pole three-phase motors with a mains voltage of 690 V and a mains frequency of 60 Hz. The butterfly valves are operated either by an electro-hydraulic actuator or manually via a gearbox.

The christening of the 225-meter ship Europa 2 took place in Hamburg on 10 May this year. The ship features state-of-the art technology and is one of the most environmentally friendly cruise ships in operation today.

KSB Group equips passenger and cargo ships, tankers and special-purpose ships with pumps and valves all over the world.
