ABB, a global leader in power and automation technology, has been awarded a contract worth $60 million to deliver Azipod ® propulsion and power systems to two Norwegian Cruise Line vessels. The Breakaway-Plus class cruise ships will be built by MEYER WERFT of Germany and delivered in Q2 2018 and Q4 2019.

The new 164,000 gt vessels will be equipped with ABB's fuel-saving Azipod XO electrical propulsion systems, which are already featured on several of Norwegian Cruise Line’s new vessels: the top-of-the-line ‘Norwegian Breakaway’ and ‘Norwegian Getaway’ as well as the larger Breakaway-Plus class ships, Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Bliss, currently under construction at MEYER WERFT.
