Pielstick Diesels Will Power
Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship —Free Literature Available
Alsthom's Diesel Group has received an order for four SEMT-Pielstick type 9 PC 20 L engines to power the 2,600-passenger cruise liner (model shown) ordered by Royal Caribbean Cruise Line from Alsthom's Shipbuilding Division, Chan- tiers de l'Atlantique. This diesel order is valued at about $4.5 million. The PC 20 engines form part of the new range of Pielstick diesels intro- duced to the market at the beginning of 1985.
With a total output of 28,000 bhp, the RCCL engines will be constructed by Alsthom's Eta- blissement Mecanique at Saint-Nazaire. These engines are of the medium-speed, long-stroke type, and have been developed to limit fuel con- sumption and to burn residual fuel.
The propulsion system for the Royal Carib- bean ship will have several innovative features, including engine installation on an elastic sus- pension system to reduce noise and vibration.
The order for the ship will provide some four million hours of work for Alsthom's shipyard at
Saint-Nazaire, plus three million hours for
French subcontractors and suppliers.
