This new cruise ship to be delivered in the them particularly suited for the high demands of summer of 2019 will be 236 meters long and 31.2 the customers in the yacht, passenger and cruise meters wide with a gross tonnage (GT) of 56,850 ship segment.

According to Siemens, the major bene? t of the NxAIR medium-voltage switchgear takes care of ef? cient and safe power distribution. The power

ZF Extends Transmission Range

ZF Marine unveiled the new ZF 83700 transmission equipped with COMOS condition monitor- ing at the SMM 2016. The new transmission supplants the ZF 63000 as the largest, most power- ful transmission in the family, and is designed for high speed vessel applications. The ZF 83700 is a non-reversing twin shaft con? guration offering both live and clutchable PTO’s as well as a clutchable PTI for ? exibility in drivetrain applications. Ratios from 2.412 to 5.591 mean this new transmission family can meet the performance envelope to match most applications. The

ZF 83700 comes standard with technology that provides immediate, smooth clutch engagement.

Designed by ZF for large stationary wind turbine gearboxes, the COMOS condition monitoring is an example of technology sharing within the organization, as COMOS has been adapted by ZF

Marine’s engineering team to meet the needs and requirements of the commercial marine duty cycle. Standard monitoring of transmission systems include normal functions such as oil level and pressure, but also include: input shaft speed, clutch monitoring, in/out cooler temp and thrust bear- ing temp. Additional advanced monitoring includes: dynamic load monitoring, vibration monitor- ing for gears and bearings and oil condition monitoring of particulate matter and water content. (Image: ZF) 67
