AIDAnova receives the “Blue Angel” – ecolabel now on the ship’s side
AIDA Cruises has been awarded the “Blue Angel”, the Federal Government’s ecolabel, for AIDAnova’s environmentally friendly ship design. On September 19 and 26, 2019, the “Blue Angel” logo was painted onto AIDAnova’s side at the Port of Marseille.
Through the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG), as on board AIDAnova, emissions of particulate matter and sulfur oxides are almost completely eliminated; nitrogen oxide and CO2 emissions are sustainably reduced.
AIDA Cruises is a trailblazer in many other areas as well with innovations that actively contribute to the energy transition.
As early as 2023, ninety-four percent of all AIDA guests will be traveling on ships that can be fully operated with low-emission liquefied natural gas or, where possible, with green shoreside power at port.
Since 2017, AIDAsol has been supplied with green shore power at Hamburg-Altona. By the end of 2020, twelve of fourteen AIDA ships will be equipped for shore power from renewable energy sources. The company is ready to start test operations for the shoreside power units planned for 2020 in Kiel and Rostock.
AIDAperla will be the first ship fitted with a battery storage system produced by marine battery supplier Corvus in Norway in 2020. The 300-meter-long cruise ship is receiving a battery pack with a capacity of 10 megawatt hours.
