Norwegian Escape, the first cruise ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s new Breakway Plus Class, was delivered in October 2015. The 164,600 GT vessel, which boasts 19 decks and 4,200 berths over a length of 325.8 m, is not only Norwegian’s largest cruise ship to date, but also one of the largest cruise ships in the world.

On board Norwegian Escape are a number of Alfa Laval systems installed to perform a wide range of functions on the ship.

Fueled by HFO, with low-sulphur HFO and MGO used as needed, the vessel has six Alfa Laval S separation systems for HFO and one for MGO, as well as an additional system for lube oil. Two oil-fired Alfa Laval Aalborg OM boilers of medium size are also present. Waste fuel recovery is performed by the unique Alfa Laval PureDry, while waste heat from the engines provides energy via five Alfa Laval XW waste heat recovery boilers. In addition there is an Alfa Laval MEP freshwater generator, as well as an Alfa Laval PureBilge system and a 500 m3/h Alfa Laval PureBallast system to ensure environmental compliance.
