Azipods Powering the Royal Caribbean’s


Watch the  powerful propellers in action, making ship navigation more precise than ever before.

Azipod is the registered brand name for ABB Group’s range of electric podded azimuth thrusters.   Royal Caribbean uses azipods to propel and safely maneuver its ships on the high seas.
The vessels are equipped with a tailor-made electrical propulsion system comprising three stern-mounted 20-megawatt (MW) Azipod propulsion units. The newer Quantum of the Seas uses two 20.5 MW Azipod XO2300 units, part of ABB’s new XO line.
