M/S Viking Grace
Greenest and quietest on the Baltic Sea.
The new vessel will be able to use three alternative fuels: traditional heavy fuel oil, diesel or liquefied natural gas (LNG), which results in less emissions. When running on LNG, the vessel meets all the new emission rules now being devised by the European Union.
The hull of the vessel will be hydrodynamically optimised to minimise its fuel consumption and cause the smallest possible swells, which is particularly important when passing through an archipelago.
The vessel's propulsion engines are diesel/gas electric to minimise its energy requirement. To achieve the highest efficiency, the propellers will be of a new type for this kind of passenger vessel.
Thanks to new soundproofing technology, Viking Grace is a very quiet vessel when operating at sea.
Engines from Wärtsilä
The new vessel, which is being built at the STX Turku shipyard in Finland, will be equipped with engines, propellers and bow thrusters from Wärtsilä.
dSign and Vertti Kivi
The dSign interior architecture office, Finland's absolutely foremost in this field today, will be responsible for the interior design of the new vessel. In 2011 Vertti Kivi, creative director at dSign, was named Finland's Interior Designer of the Year.
