Wärtsilä provide solutions to MSC Euribia

Technology group Wärtsilä has provided a broad scope of solutions for MSC Euribia which completed its net-zero GHG emission maiden voyage on June 8 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The MSC Euribia is MSC Cruises most energy-efficient vessel and is equipped with some of the latest and most advanced technologies and solutions to ensure efficiency and sustainability.

The LNG-fuelled ship operates with two 16-cylinder and two 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 46DF dual-fuel engines fitted with nitrogen oxide reduction (NOR) units, two Wärtsilä LNGPac fuel storage and supply systems and four Wärtsilä thrusters.

The combination of LNG fuel and the highly efficient Wärtsilä 46DF engines allows this vessel to be a benchmark in the reduction of emissions.

The MSC Euribia is the second ship in the MSC Cruises’ fleet to be powered by LNG fuel. This achieves a substantial reduction in emissions.

Michele Francioni, SVP process improvement for MSC Cruises says: ‘MSC Euribia exemplifies our commitment to next generation environmental technologies that will ultimately enable decarbonised operations. We appreciate the value of the Wärtsilä solutions, which are crucial to the ship’s efficient and sustainable performance.’

‘We are fully supportive of this trend, and are working hard to deliver the environmentally sustainable technologies that will accelerate the transition to carbon neutral operations,’ adds Maikel Arts, general manager of technical sales, cruise – marine projects business support, Wärtsilä.
