Viking Glory will be one of the most climate-smart passenger ships in the world

Thanks to advanced, innovative technological solutions, Viking Glory will be one of the world’s most climate-smart passenger ships. It is expected to use up to 10% less fuel than our smaller vessel Viking Grace, which was previously honoured with the distinction of being the world’s most environmentally-friendly passenger ship.

Even more climate-smart with new steam turbines

Viking Glory will be the first vessel in the world to be equipped with steam turbines from the Swedish clean tech company Climeon. Combined with Climeon’s Heat Power system, they are expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 4,000 tonnes a year.

Good news from the environmental front! To further reduce our climate impact, we have had the Swedish company Climeon develop two specially-designed steam turbines for Viking Glory. As a result, waste heat from the gases produced in the engines’ combustion process is captured and in the next phase used to generate electricity using Climeon’s Heat Power modules. These innovations are estimated to supply up to 40% of the electricity needed for passenger functions and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 4,000 tonnes a year.
