    New Carnival ship: To be powered by MAN Diesel & Turbo


    With a gross tonnage of about 133,500 tons and a passenger capacity of about 5,000, the ship will be the largest vessel in the Carnival Cruise Lines' fleet. Its construction represents the introduction of a brand new class of ship that will be powered by five MAN Tier-II-type engines – 2 × 14V48/60CR + 3 × 8L48/60CR types – capable of delivering 62,400 kW. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the spring of 2016.

    During the evaluation period to select the most suitable engine configuration, Carnival Cruise Lines and Fincantieri paid special attention to the highest possible degree of redundancy, safety, power flexibility and reliability. The five 48/60CR engines will operate with MAN Diesel & Turbo’s well-proven, state-of-the-art, common-rail injection system that accommodates running on both heavy fuel oil and distillate fuels.

    This technology, developed in-house by MAN Diesel & Turbo and fully optimised for its engines, provides superior performance in terms of fuel consumption and smoke emissions, especially at part load compared to its IMO Tier II engine version with conventional injection system.

    Dr. Stephan Timmermann, of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Executive Board, said: “This new order is yet another historical milestone for the company in what is a technologically but also commercially demanding market. Gaining the confidence of Carnival Cruise Lines, the world’s largest cruise operator, fills us with pride but we are also aware of the high level of expectation that working with a major, new customer brings.”
