MV Werften and MAN Diesel & Turbo have signed a contract to equip two Global-class cruise ships for Star Cruises with MAN engines.
Each ship will get six type 48/60CR engines with a combined output of 96,000 kW. The ships are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021.
Genting Hong Kong, which owns Star Cruises, also uses MAN engines on its recent Dream Cruises ships.
“We are looking forward to working together with MV WERFTEN and Genting Hong Kong, who have been established players in the cruise business and a MAN customer for many years,” said Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Diesel & Turbo. “Experienced companies have come together to establish a fourth player in the tight global cruise liner shipyard market. And it has been done right here on the German Baltic sea coast, a region with a long shipbuilding tradition. We are contributing to this with modern propulsion concepts, based on state of the art ‘Made in Germany’ engine technology.”
