MEIN SCHIFF RELAX launched in Monfalcone

CruiseThe launch of MEIN SCHIFF RELAX (initially MEIN SCHIFF 8), the first of two InTUItion class new concept cruise ships, dual-fuel LNG powered that Fincantieri is building for TUI Cruises took place at the Monfalcone shipyard. The godmother of the ship was Elena Sperti, an employee of the shipyard. With approximately 330m length and 160,000 gross tons, these units will constitute the backbone of TUI Cruises’ future fleet.

The order is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri with energy efficiency is at the center of the project, with the dual objective of containing operating consumption and minimizing environmental impact, in line with all the most recent regulations on the matter. The vessels will be future-proof thanks to their ability to also burn low-emission fuels such as bio- or e-LNG..

The units will also be equipped with catalytic converters (compliant with the Euro 6 standard) and with a generative turbine that uses the residual heat of the diesel generators and an electrical shore-power connection from the ground. All this guarantees almost emission-free operation while in port (about 40% of operating time). Finally, the ships will be equipped with an even more efficient innovative waste treatment system capable of transforming organic substances into charcoal through a thermal process.
