Sweden's Alfa Laval’s marine equipment has been installed on Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest cruise ships, being built by Germany’s Meyer Werft.

The first of the two cruise ships, the Norwegian Breakaway, is due to be delivered to Norwegian Cruise Line this month. It will be the first cruise ship to take advantage of the new MARPOL MEPC 1/Circ.642 regulation which allows the vessel to recover and re-use the HFO fraction of waste oil as fuel for the diesel engines.

The 324m ship has been fitted with Alfa’s PureDry waste fuel recovery system to achieve this. The system, which has only two moving parts and no bowl aperture or sensitive hydraulic system to facilitate discharge, transports solids to the base of the machine where they exit into a container below. This leaves only non-pumpable dry solids that can be landed as dry waste, reducing waste oil volumes by 99%.

Norwegian Cruise Line says it expects the PureDry system to save it $1m during Norwegian Breakaway’s first year.

In addition, the vessel has also been fitted with Alfa’s chemical free ballast water treatment system, PureBallast, Alfa’s Multi Effect Plate (MEP) evaporator and PureBilge water treatment system; high speed separators with Alcap technology, two Aalborg OM-TCi boilers and four Aalborg XW waste heat recovery boilers.

Its sister ship, Norwegian Getaway, is due to be delivered in January 2014.
