Aker re-engines links with Celebrity

PARIS 10 January – Aker Yards France is working hard to build its relationship with Celebrity Cruises and hopes the installation of Aker-built Wärtsilä Diesel engines in two of the four Millennium-class vessels will help. Aker took over Alstom-Chantiers de l’Atlantique last year at a time of tension between Alstom and Celebrity over problems with podded propulsion units. Now the French ship and engine builder is constructing diesel engines to be installed into Celebrity’s Millennium and Constellation at Sobrena ship repair yard in Brest, France, in April and May. The new engines will enable Celebrity to make considerable cost savings by burning fuel oil in port instead of expensive diesel oil. Four Millennium-class ships built by Alstom-Chantiers de l’Atlantique between 2000 and 2002 were powered by Co-Gaz Electric Stream engines, featuring General Electric gas turbines burning diesel oil. Aker is confident it will also win the contract to install diesel engines on the third and fourth ships in the series, the Summit and Infinity; Royal Caribbean’s Radiance-class ships – Brilliance of the Seas, Jewel of the Seas, Radiance of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas – are also to have a diesel engine installed.
