Exploration cruise



Sustaining its strong track record in the expedition ship market, ABB serves customers and their ultra-luxury expedition vessels with integrated power, propulsion, distribution, control and automation solutions. Azipod® propulsors have become the preferred solution for expedition ships in challenging conditions. To date, more than 20 ABB’s Azipod® propulsion units have been specified for exploration cruise ships designed with a focus on safety, environmental sustainability and comfort.
