According to MANA, Under the contract, the company will supply a Promas system, deck machinery and steering gear to two vessels being built for Viking Ocean Cruises, a part of the US cruise company Viking Cruises.
The contract also covers steering gear and deck machinery for a further vessel under construction for Miami-headquartered cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Furthermore, Rolls-Royce will also provide steering gear for two vessels being built for Princess Cruises.
The company said that Promas, which was developed using the latest Computational Fluid Dynamics, integrates the propeller, a hubcap, rudder bulb and the rudder itself into a single hydrodynamic efficient unit which can increase propulsive efficiency by 3-8 percent for single screw vessels and 2-6 percent for twin screw vessels and reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
“A modular range of winches and anchor windlasses allow efficient and cost-effective tailor made systems to be built up from a range of standard mooring winches, anchor cable lifters, and warping heads,” Rolls-Royce said.
