AIDA Cruises Takes Delivery of First LNG-Powered Cruise Ship
MEYER WERFT delivered the world’s first LNG-powered cruise ship, and the largest cruise ship ever built in Germany, to AIDA Cruises. The new ship will be setting new standards in terms of environmental sustainability with its innovative LNG technology.
Before the ship was handed over, AIDANova had proven its seaworthiness during three sea trials on the North Sea when many technical and nautical systems were successfully put to the test. The four low-emission dual fuel engines came from Caterpillar (Kiel/Rostock) and can run 100 percent on LNG both at sea and in port
