Viking Line introduces their newest ship like this:
“There's nothing on our new vessel to block your view. You're at one with the archipelago and can enjoy a range of conceivable and inconceivable facilities — like the amazing rooftop terrace and the Baltic Sea's first floating market hall. Viking Glory will sail daily between Stockholm, Mariehamn, and Turku starting in early 2022.”
We are excited to say that Glamox has been a part of this adventure.
Viking Glory was ordered on April 5th 2017 and was launched on January 26th 2021. It is 222,55 meters in length, 35 meters wide, and is built to carry 2800 passengers plus a crew of 200. It is a very technologically advanced ship, while also having a minimal environmental impact. A special electric propulsion system saves both time and energy in manoeuvring the vessel, brand new fuel engines optimize fuel consumption, and waste heat is turned into electricity. With this focus on reducing the ship’s carbon footprint, it goes without saying that any luminaires used on this ship would have to be environmentally friendly LEDs.
All of our luminaires are built to be tough and have a very long lifespan, which leads to reduced downtime and maintenance costs. Choosing LED means a reduction in energy use, which makes it both an environmentally friendly and cost-efficient choice.
Viking Glory is a part of a Finnish-Swedish EU project that aims to promote green and efficient maritime transport and give another push to maritime decarbonisation. The new vessel will launch service under the Finnish flag on the Turku–Mariehamn–Stockholm route on March 1.
