Modular ship Design for efficient build
The 101 X-Expedition Cruise combines the best of a cruise ship with the amenities and luxury of a superyacht…Read More
X-Expedition is designed on a standard cruise ship platform. It is efficient and reliable to build and can be optimised. Thanks to its modular design and construction, X-Expedition is like a big puzzle where everything fits perfectly. This concept was developed to avoid waste of space and materials, achieving a perfect integration between exclusive design and optimised building costs. “We wanted to design a new home at sea for our travelers,” explains Stefano Pastrovich, “With this class of vessel, everything is designed with the passenger in mind: the cabins are the right comfortable size, the restaurants are placed to avoid seasickness, the number of restaurants is increased to reduce the number of tables for more privacy”.
Hybrid power Module.
Green comfort for maximum flexibility Wӓrtsilӓ HY is a unique hybrid product that combines engines, an energy storage system and power electronics into a single smart product. The different elements of the power module are optimised to work together through a new generation energy management system (EMS), specifically designed for this application. The EMS controls the power flow between the different power sources, but it also adds performance optimisation features with respect to vessel performance monitoring, emissions, trim and route. Wӓrtsilӓ HY achieves unrivalled efficiency of operations and delivers guaranteed performance. “X-Expedition ships will make cruising greener and more comfortable than ever before, the EMS coordinates the engines and energy storage system to guarantee that engines are used at their highest efficiency load points during the entire navigation, reducing fuel consumption and emissions in compliance with the latest environmental regulations.” In green mode, by switching to electrical storage power, emissions are reduced to zero for shorter cruise journeys, or at anchor. This also makes the stay on board extremely comfortable as noise and vibrations are almost eliminated. For added flexibility, Wärtsilä HY ensures cold system start-ups and instant load-taking capacity, with rapid response to step-load changes making power boosts instantly available. The higher level of redundancy given by the combination of engines and batteries provides also an extra safety insurance to the vessel. All these features give the X-Expedition an unparalleled smooth ride. “…so that passengers can dream sweet dreams while sailing in extreme locations,and maybe book another cruise extravaganza during that dinner chat at the captain’s table.”
