The initially 2 World Class cruise ship vessels being developed for Geneva, Switzerland, based MSC Cruises by shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique will certainly include a plan of Wärtsilä services developed to sustain and also improve their effectiveness and also ecological sustainability.

The World Class cruise liner will certainly each attribute 2,760 staterooms and also an optimum tenancy of 6,850 visitors, the greatest traveler capability in the international cruise ship fleet. They will certainly have a size of 1,083 feet and also a beam of light of 154 feet.

The initially 2 vessels will certainly be provided in 2022 and also 2024– with choices for 2 even more ships in 2025 and also 2026.


They will certainly be the initial 2 LNG-fueled cruise liner with Wärtsilä 46DF engines and also with Wärtsilä LNGPac systems.

The complete range of Wärtsilä’s supply of completely incorporated services consists of, for every of both vessels, 5 14-cylinder Wärtsilä 46DF dual-fuel engines fitted with nitrogen oxide decrease (NOR) devices, 2 Wärtsilä LNGPac gas storage space and also supply systems, 7 Wärtsilä thrusters, and also 2 Wärtsilä repaired pitch props.

The Wärtsilä 46DF engines are IMO Tier III certified in gas setting, and also are certified in aquatic diesel oil (MDO) setting in mix with the NOR devices, a discharge after-treatment service based upon Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) innovation.

The Wärtsilä devices is arranged for distribution in mid-2020 for the initial ship, and also in mid-2022 for the 2nd.

“The focus of our solutions is on reducing energy and fuel consumption in order to promote efficiency. At the same time, our nitrogen oxide reduction and LNG solutions enhance environmental sustainability, which together with the higher efficiency, is very much in line with Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine strategy,” claims Stefan Nysj ö, Vice President, Marine Power Solutions, Wärtsilä.

“We are very familiar with Wärtsilä’s products and they have always provided us with excellent support in newbuild projects. These two new cruise ships will represent the latest thinking in minimizing the environmental impact and reducing fuel consumption, which is in line with our Ecorizon plan, and Wärtsilä is playing a major role in this,” claims Yves Pelpel, Technical Director, Chantiers de l’Atlantique

The steel reducing event for the initial of both vessels, the MSC Europa, was held at Chantiers de l’Atlantique in the long run of October and also it is arranged to be introduced in May 2022.
