GE and Fincantieri deliver
GE Power Conversion and Fincantieri have successfully delivered the ‘Costa Diadema’ cruise ship to Carnival Corporation, marking 10 years since the start of their shipbuilding relationship.
Built at the Marghera Shipyards near Venice, Costa Diadema is 306m in length, weighs 132,500 gross tonnes, and has the capacity to carry up to 5,000 passengers. It’s fitted with GE’s latest electric power and propulsion system including six generators and six aft/bow thruster electrical motors, HV main switchboard and distribution transformers, propulsion transformers, synchro-drives and motors.
“By using GE’s electric power and propulsion system, ship owners will benefit from a reliable power supply, higher operating efficiency and lower emissions. Our long-lasting relationship with Carnival is irrefutable proof that our solution stands the test of time,” said Paul English, marine business leader, GE Power Conversion.
“Over the past 10 years, GE has been a reliable partner to help us build this ship and resolve various issues. We have a strong reliance on GE and its capability to ensure our passengers a very pleasant and smooth journey,” added Richard-Haslam Jones, Carnival Corporate Shipbuilding.
