Training for Nova

AIDA will take delivery of Carnival Corp's first LNG-powered ship AIDAnova, in mid-November. Operating an LNG-powered ship is a bit different not only in the way they perform but also in the fueling (bunkering) process and in the way safety measures are handled.

Rather than have AIDA crews being totally inexperienced in operating an LNG-powered ship on the day it is handed over to them, Carnival Maritime has partnered with Wessels Reederei, to do hands-on officer training aboard Wessels Reederei's LNG-powered container ship WES Amelie.

The complete story appeared in the August 23 edition of Cruise News Daily.
