ALSTOM 91,000 gross tons 965 feet long 2 pods (27,000 Hp each)

Turns on a dime

We make amazing things happen

ALSTOM Power Conversion, in partnership with

Kamewa of Rolls-Royce, has designed the world's largest, most advanced, electric propulsion pod. All four of Celebrity Cruises' new Millennium class cruise ships will be driven by our Mermaid™ azimuth external propellers. So too will the Queen Mary 2.

The compact Mermaid™ system releases valuable space inside the hull to accommodate more passengers.

Simpler, more flexible operation with higher overall efficiency make Mermaid™ the ideal propulsion solution. This fully integrated system provides excellent maneuverability and crash stop capability and reduces the need for tug assistance. Noise and vibration levels,

NOx emissions, maintenance schedules, installation time and costs - all are substantially reduced to provide a safer, greener, more efficient operation. • f. astructure ; ~ . - -. v.- : j- V-
