AIDA Cruises reports reduction in CO2 emissions
AIDA Cruises reduced its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per person onboard by 4.35% in 2016, according to its sustainability report, AIDA cares . The cruise line is beginning to supply AIDAperla with low-emission LNG while docked at the ports of Barcelona, Marseille and Civitavecchia, in efforts to cut CO2 emissions. The average cruise ship spends 40% of its operating time docked at port. Due to its dual-fuel engine, AIDAperla can produce the power she requires while docked in port from LNG. The use of LNG reduces the emission of nitrogen oxides by up to 80% and carbon dioxide emissions are cut by 20%. AIDA Cruises tested the technology in early 2016 with AIDAperla’s twin ship, AIDAprima. Shortly after, operations were possible in the ports of Southampton, Le Havre, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam. The ship ended her Northern Europe season in mid-November 2017 after 18 months.News schreiben
