Yesterday, Meyer floated the first engine room module of AIDAnova, which will be the first cruise ship powered by dual-fuel engines that can operate on clean-burning LNG both at sea and in port.
This ship is being built a bit differently than most built at Meyer Werft. Some of the larger pieces are being built at Neptune Werft in Rostock (owned by Meyer) and then floated to Meyer Werft in Papenburg where they will be assembled into the full ship inside the giant covered building dock.
The complete story appeared in the September 22 edition of Cruise News Daily.
