Liner Norway Fitted With New MaK-Driven Gensets
—Literature Available Two of the latest additions to the growing number of MaK type M35 diesel engines now in service are those recently installed in the SS Norway, the world's largest cruise liner. Owned by Klosters Rederi A/S of Oslo, the Norway operates mainly in the Caribbean area. However, during a recent visit to Europe she paid a brief call at Hamburg where the two MaK diesel generator sets were installed. Each engine develops 3,600 bhp at 750 rpm and drives a three-phase Siemens alternator producing 3,150 kva.
Installed by Klosters to improve the ship's power system, it is expected that the Norway's electrical requirements of 6-7 megawatts will be produced mainly by the new gensets. Operating on heavy fuel oil of 320 CST, the new gensets should halve the fuel costs of the former turbogenerators.
MaK produces a range of diesel engines covering outputs from 1,000 to 13,500 bhp, suitable for main propulsion or generator drive. The company has extensive experience with heavy fuel operation dating back to 1964, and all its engines are designed for operation on bunker fuels up to 700 CST.
