Wartsila Diesel Repowering SeaEscape's Cruise Vessel M / V Scandinavian Sun

SeaEscape, one of Florida's leaders in one-day cruising, chose Wartsila Diesel to supply three diesel generating sets to repower one of its cruise ships.

The cruise vessel M/V Scandinavian Sun cruises daily between Miami and Freeport in the Bahamas.

The original power plant for this vessel consisted of three generating sets of 1,180 bhp each. In July 1988, one of these existing generating sets was replaced with a Wartsila Vasa 6R22 with an output of 1,180 bhp at a speed of 900 rpm.

The refitting work was completed in a fixed time period by Wartsila Diesel personnel without taking the vessel out of service. The other two engines will be installed at approximately one-year intervals.

The selection of diesel generating sets for this repowering project was based on good overall economy of the Wartsila Vasa engines, including low fuel oil and low lube oil and spare parts consumption. Another important factor was the capability of the Wartsila Vasa engines to cope with any type of fuel on the market, from diesel oil to the lowest grade heavy fuels.
