We want to show you the archipelago like you've never seen it before. On board our new ship Viking Glory there's nothing blocking your view – the sea is everywhere. To fulfil our mission of safeguarding this unique maritime environment, we use green innovations. Priority is given to the environment and to your comfort as the travel experience of tomorrow takes shape. Welcome to a greener, more comfortable world. Welcome to Viking Line.
Call us technology geeks if you want, but our environmental journey begins with our technological innovations. And when it comes to Viking Glory and new environmental technology, you’ll have to get used to expressions such as “first in the world” and “least environmental impact”.
For instance, Viking Glory will be the first cruise ship in the world that uses ABB’s Azipod rudder propellers, a propulsion system that saves both time and energy in manoeuvring the vessel. Thanks to the brand-new multi-fuel engines from Wärtsilä, fuel consumption is further optimised. Other Swedish and Finnish inventions make it possible to convert both waste heat from the vessel’s engines and waste cooling power from liquefied natural gas into electricity.
