CGEE Alsthom alternator. The al- ternators supply two 16,000-hp
CGEE-Alsthom electric propulsion motors which drive twin fixed-pitch propellers. Four MAN B&W Diesel generator sets produce an output of 9,270 kw each. The 40 megawatts of electric power generated is equiva- lent to the power supply for an industrial town of 80,000 inhabi- tants.
For stability, the Star Princess is designed with Brown Brothers fin- type roll stabilizers, and for added maneuverability, is fitted with three transverse thrusters, two forward and one aft.
The interior design of the vessel was the sole responsibility of Los
Angeles-based naval architecture and marine engineering firm Ellerbe
Becket Associates. The centerpieces of the Star Princess are its spectacu- lar three-deck atrium, the Plaza, and elegant two-deck dining room, the Fountain Court. Both the atrium and open dining area meet stringent Lloyd's Register and U.S.
Coast Guard standards.
The Star Princess, which made her inaugural voyage on March 24, operates in eastern and western round-trip Caribbean sailings from
Ft. Lauderdale in the winter, and 12-day Alaska sailings round-trip from San Francisco in the summer.
MHI Receives Order

Fincantieri Launches 'Scarabeo 5'
Semisubmersible Drilling Rig
The semisubmersible drilling rig
Scarabeo 5 was recently launched in
Italy at the Sestri Ponente (Genoa) shipyard of Fincantieri-Cantieri
Navali Italiani SpA. Construction on the rig started in May 1987, and delivery is forecast for 1990.
Ordered by the Italian company of Saipem (ENI Group), Scarabeo 5 is a semisubmersible, column stabi- lized, dynamically positioned drill- ing unit based on a Maritime Engi- neering design. The unit has a length of about 364 feet, breadth of 237 feet and height of 143 feet.
Scarabeo 5 is fitted with an Inte- grated Management System. It con- sists of a totally integrated, thor- oughly distributed process control and data acquisition system, based on a proven hardware and LAN, with built-in simulation facilities and field configuration tool. Main functions are automatic power man- agement; fluid management (in- cluding stability calculation); rig management such as drilling, logis- tics and survey; automatic thruster assistance to mooring, including
EMP dual redundant hydroacoustic reference system.
Mooring system up to 900 meters will be assured by eight 15-ton an- chors, while on depths from 900 to 1,800 meters, Scarabeo 5 will oper- ate in "dynamic positioned mode" by means of eight thrusters based on eight 2,350-kw electric motors.
Scarabeo 5 will be able to operate
Semisubmersible drilling rig Scarabeo 5, now under construction at the Sestri Pon- ente shipyard of Fincantieri, will have a drill- ing capability of up to 7,600-10,000 me- ters. in severe environmental conditions: in operation, it will be able to resist winds up to 33 m/s, current up to 1.0 m/s and significant wave height up to 9.0 meters.
Scarabeo 5 has air-conditioned living quarters for 100 people. All working areas are protected, fully ventilated and air conditioned to allow maximum comfort and safety for the crew.
