The first Floating Engine Room Unit (FERU) for the LNG-powered AIDAnova has been released into the water for the first time, at the Neptun shipyard in Rostock, AIDA Cruises informed.

The module, stretching over 120 meters long and 42 meters wide, as well as three decks high, is carrying the four dual-fuel engines by Caterpillar for AIDAnova.

AIDAnova is the first cruise ship in the world, which – starting in the fall of 2018 – will be able to operate with the lowest-emission fossil fuel thanks to the four dual-fuel engines.

The shipment of the first AIDAnova module from Rostock to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg is scheduled to take place from September 25–28, 2017, depending on the weather conditions.
