    Le Mistral, the latest French-built cruise ship, is equipped with many Schneider Electric products

    Le Mistral, the latest vessel to come out of France’s Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyards, was inaugurated on June 25. More than 12,000 people attended the ceremony, including French Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. Le Mistral continues a nearly 40-year tradition that began with the legendary ocean liner France. The 216-meter-long beauty is equipped with four 5,650 kWh diesel engines that supply all the onboard current. Schneider Electric provided electrical distribution products and switchgear for the project. The package included two Merlin Gerin Masterbloc MB300 low voltage switchboards, Merlin Gerin Masterpact (5,000 A) and Compact NS circuit breakers, Telemecanique AK3 multi-connection busbar trunking for motor starters, a number of Telemecanique industrial control products (buttons, lights, contactors, D2 and F series relays) and thecelebrated Integral contactor-breaker. Schneider Electric has worked with the shipbuilding industry for more than 60 years. The Company was called in on the project by Chantiers de l’Atlantique subcontractor Ateliers de Montoir in recognition of this expertise. Le Mistral is now on its way to the Mediterranean Sea, and it will sail to the Caribbean this winter.
