Classification society



  • Ilma design includes some technologies at the forefront of what cruise vessels can get in terms of energy efficiency and environmental performance, combined with a hydrodynamic optimization of the hull form and appendages for slow steaming.
  • Powered by dual-fuel (DF) engines using natural gas as main fuel and marine gas oil as pilot fuel, Ilma thus contributes to the setting of this rising environmental standard.
  • Indeed, compared to traditional fuel, DF engines bring major improvement in terms of emissions of main pollutants.
  • Furthermore, the selected engines (Wärtsilä 31 DF series) are the best-in-class in terms of energy efficiency and emissions.
  • Ilma will be able to use a “Baltic option” for her Water Treatment. When operated, this option significantly reduces the pollution (eutrophication) for a better preservation of waters.
  • Ilma will also be equipped with an integrated Data Acquisition System (now part of Chantier de l’Atlantique standard offer for any new project) gathering “on the fly” and compressing a large amount of raw data originating from various automation systems installed on board for a seamless transmission to shore through a satellite link. Experts can then analyze the collected data depending on their own objectives, such as the optimization of the fuel consumption or the pollution prevention and control.
