LATEST MEYER WERFT CRUISE NEWBUILD LEAVES YARD

LATEST MEYER WERFT CRUISE NEWBUILD LEAVES YARD

Friday, October 22, 2021 

The German Meyer Group says that the 'AIDAcosma' is due to leave the Papenburg building yard shortly and will be transferred on the River Ems to Eemshaven.

The vessel is the 115th cruise ship delivered by the Meyer Group, and the third with a low-emission LNG propulsion system. In addition to a reduction in CO2 emissions, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter are almost completely avoided - sulphur oxides are completely eliminated. All current ships in Meyer Werft's order book are equipped with this propulsion system, while intensive work is already underway on new technologies such as fuel cells and synthetic fuels.

AIDAcosma will be transferred to the Ems river backwards with the support of two tugs. This type of passage has proven its worth due to its better manoeuvrability. After arrival at Eemshaven, the ship will be readied for final completion and sea trials.
