Azipod XO propulsion units will power two new vessels to be built for Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) by Meyer Werft, under a US$60 million contract with ABB.

The Azipod gearless steerable propulsion system features an electric drive motor is in a submerged pod outside the ship hull. ABB says the Azipod XO concept is designed to reduce vessel lifecycle costs and increase ship profitability, providing high efficiency, excellent manoeuvrability and increased transportation capacity.
