For the first time, Rolls-Royce is supplying some marine engines to a yacht built in the United States. Why did the partnership come about?

With an integrated SCR system, they meet strict emission regulations IMO III and EPA Tier 3 Entertainment and each has an output of 1939 KW (2600 hp). Rolls-Royce also supplies the NautIQ Blue Vision NG automation solution for the monitoring and control of the ship’s operational system. The 38 meter yacht will be built at the Westport Yachts shipyard in Westport, Washington, USA.

Future plans of the company

From 2023, Rolls Royce will certify its next-generation 2000 and 4000 series engines for sustainable fuels such as synthetic diesel (second-generation biofuel or e-diesel), enabling climate-neutral operation in nearly all use. In addition to using sustainable energy, the company is also developing new technologies such as CO2-free fuel cell systems. Smart ship solutions, which support the captain in situational awareness and navigation, should also help reduce CO2 emissions and increase safety on board.
