CARGO HOLD VENTILATION Main Vehicle Deck: Upper Vehicle Deck:

DIESEL-ELECTRIC PROPULSION CONCEPT The diesel-electric concept includes four prime movers, supplying electric power for two 11,000 kW electrical drive motors, auxiliary systems and public spaces. The concept provides a very high level of redundancy, e.g. 18 knots speed will be reached with two prime movers off-line and sufficient remaining power for public spaces. Propellers are running at constant revolution speed providing a robust and reliable solution for propulsion power.

20 air changes per hour during loading 10 air changes per hour at sea naturally ventilated

CARGO ACCESS EQUIPMENT 2 pairs of parallel swinging bow/stern doors (one pair at each ship end) on main vehicle deck Movable railings on upper vehicle deck (at each ship end)

SPECIAL FEATURES n n n n n n n

PRIME MOVER ENGINES AND ALTERNATORS 4 x 4,000 kW medium speed diesel engines, Type: MaK 8M 32C, 600 rpm Fuel: MGO (Marine Gas Oil) or MDO-DMB (Marine Diesel Oil) according to ISO 8217 Each prime mover is coupled to a three-phase synchronous alternator of 4,800 kVA. Each pair of prime mover and corresponding alternator is mounted on one common bedplate which is resiliently mounted to the ship’s structure.

Best possible speed/power performance due to advanced hullform and feathering concept for forward propeller Lowest possible fuel oil consumption Innovative propulsion concept for highest degree of redundancy and maintainability Ice class IA for complete propulsion train High passenger comfort, e.g. high requirements on noise and vibration from ABS Comfort Class+ Panoramic view in cafeteria, coffee bar, buffet restaurant and deck seating lounges Maximum private car capacity with high cargo loading flexibility

DRIVE MOTORS 2 x 11,000 kW electrical drive motors, 717 rpm, each coupled to a reduction gearbox
