MAN Diesel and Turbo have signed a contract with Fincantieri shipyard for three new cruisers

Fincantieri chose MAN Diesel & Turbo to build new engines ordered from Costa Asia and P&O Cruises from Australia. These two companies are part of the world’s largest transportation company Carnival Corporation, with a fleet of more than 100 cruisers. Each boat will have 2 × 14V 48/60 CR + 3 × 8L48 / 60 CR mid-stroke MAN engines, meaning it will produce up to 62,400 kW of power. Each newly built ship will be 323 meters long and weigh 133,500 tons. While choosing the best cruiser engine, the owners of Fincantieri decided to pay attention to the power, safety, redundancy and reliability of the engine.
