Cruises, Aida aims at LNG
The first liquid gas fueled ship of the German group set off
The end of October was the time when, what the German ship owner Aida defined “the first entirely LNG-fueled cruise” set off. AidaNova actually performed bunkering at the Dutch port of Eemshaven, where the bunker barge Cardissa filled three tanks of the ship with a total of 3,500 m3 of LNG.
The refueling, underlines a message, will allow AidaNova to be powered – both at sea and in port – for weeks, eliminating almost completely the ems of particulate matter and sulfur oxides and significantly reduce those of NOx and CO2.
By 2023 Aida will have two other new generation cruise ships fueled with LNG, already commissioned to the German shipyard Meyer Werft.
