Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed a number of the environmental innovations which will be present on its new ship – the Norwegian Breakaway.
The advances, which range from emission reduction systems to enhanced safety structures will all be fully installed on 25 April 2013 when the ship is officially launched.
“Being environmentally conscious is of the utmost importance to us at Norwegian as we have demonstrated with our state of the art environment practices and technology in place across our fleet,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “Norwegian Breakaway features a number of environmentally friendly attributes in line with our Eco-Smart Cruising philosophy. We are proud that with these technologies we continue to lead the way in ship innovation and reduction of our carbon footprint.”
Technically the Norwegian Breakaway is equipped with ABB XO Azipods, Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics and Eniram – to name but a few enhancements – that all work to increase optimisations in various ways from fuel consumption to recording how optimisations can be introduced. The ship also uses LED lighting in all public spaces – a far more environmentally friendly way of lighting a vessel.
