Carnival Cruise Line was set to make a major announcement today related to its suspension of operations but that has now been delayed.

Carnival Cruise Lines has selected Man Diesel & turbo Engines to provide five 48/60CR engines to the Carnival Vista and a new generation of cruise ships.

[quote_box_right]Dr. Stephan Timmermann, of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Executive Board, said: “This new order is yet another historical milestone for the company in what is a technologically but also commercially demanding market. Gaining the confidence of Carnival Cruise Lines, the world’s largest cruise operator, fills us with pride but we are also aware of the high level of expectation that working with a major, new customer brings.”[/quote_box_right]

The engines will be a diesel-electric propulsion system and will be constructed into the upcoming ship at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy which is where the Carnival Vista will be built. The Tier-II-type engines will produce 62,400 kW of power which may also be used in ships after the Carnival Vista.

It clearly signals the deepening of our nascent collaboration with one of the world’s dominant cruise shipbuilders, something we view as very encouraging.” Said Dr. Stephan Timmermann, of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Executive Board[/quote_box_left]

Carnival Cruise Line had been looking for a replacement from it’s current ships engines and the new Man Diesel& Turbo engines will be more reliable and an improvement in fuel consumption. The new Carnival ship along with the new engines will be completed by Spring 2016 and is set to carry 5,000 passengers at 133,500 tons.
