ABB said it has secured a power and propulsion contract for the two debut Seabourn ultra-luxury expedition vessels.

The contract covers two 170-meter length ships due delivery to the Seattle-based cruise company from Italian yard T. Mariotti, in June 2021 and May 2022 respectively.

Seabourn has chosen ABB's power and propulsion technology for the 23,000gt ships that integrates main generators, switchboard, convertors, bow thruster motors and the remote control system in a single package, plus twin 6MW Azipod propulsion units.

Built to strict Polar Code 6 hull specifications, the 264-passenger capacity vessels have been designed for the ultra-luxury polar expedition market. Utilizing the Azipod propulsion system frees up space on board, allowing these vessels to carry additional crafts such as kayaks, rubber boats and a pair of submarines - from Antarctica to Arctic and other exotic destination.

To date, more than 20 exploration cruise ships have been specified with ABB's Azipod propulsion.

The vessels will be connected to ABB Ability Collaborative Operations Center infrastructure, which monitors the performance of ABB technology on board and remotely connects operators with ABB experts - something that is particularly important for ships operating in remote areas.
