M/S Viking Grace represents a new generation of ships characterised by modern design and concepts, top quality services and consistent environmental thinking.
Environmentally friendly fuel
Viking Grace is the first passenger ship of its size that runs on completely sulphur-free liquefied natural gas (LNG). Learn more about LNG.
Compared to present-day fuels, nitrogen and particulate emissions are reduced by 85% and greenhouse gases by 15%. LNG meets all IMO emission requirements that apply now or will enter into force in the near future.
Excess heat from the engines is used when the ship is in port and the LNG cooling is harnessed for air conditioning.
Adapting to the environment
The hull of the ship has been hydrodynamically optimised in order to minimise waves, which is especially important in the archipelago. Viking Grace also has high requirements when it comes to the elimination of external noise and is one of the quietest ships in the world.
New energy recycling system
Viking Grace is the first ship in the world that uses the energy recycling system Ocean Marine, which was developed by the Swedish innovation company Climeon.
The system converts excess heat from the engines into 700,000 kWh clean and emission-free electricity per year. The electricity is primarily used on the cabin decks, for example for lighting.
