A Special Look for Genting Dream
Wärtsilä is supplying a special external lighting system for a new cruise ship currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The 150,000 GRT vessel, the Genting Dream, has been ordered by Dream Cruises, part of Genting Hong Kong.
The dynamic exterior lighting concept developed by Project International Lighting Designers provides a stunning visual effect to the ship's exterior profile. It has been engineered and installed by Wärtsilä Funa.
The technology is based on the use of customized LED red, green, blue and white (RGBW) lighting devices, all of which are individually controlled to provide color, movement and video effects.
The 335-meter (1,100-foot) long Genting Dream is the first of two cruise vessels being built for the company. It will be delivered in October and has been purpose-built for the Chinese and other Asian markets. It will accommodate 3,400 passengers and 2,000 crew, and is scheduled to be in operation from November this year. Its sister ship, the World Dream, is scheduled for delivery in late 2017.
In 2015, the cruise ships Norwegian Escape, Anthem of the Seas, Mein Schiff 4 and Viking Star are equipped with technology by Funa. This year, technology deliveries include Ovation of the Seas, AIDAHyperion, Harmony of the Seas, Mein Schiff 5 and Viking Star 2.
