Shell to Supply LNG Fuel to AIDA Cruises
AIDA Cruises and Shell have sealed their partnership for the future supply of LNG to the AIDAprima and her sister ship AIDAperla. As the exclusive strategic partner of AIDA Cruises, a brand of the Carnival Corporation, Shell will supply the LNG at all ports for low-emission ship operation.
In all ports along the Metropolitan route, the AIDAprima can be operated with LNG while docked at port. The preparations and initial permit procedures for the ports of Hamburg, Southampton, Le Havre, Rotterdam and Zeebrugge are already well underway. LNG trucks will ensure the supply of LNG. AIDA Cruises will begin test operations in the first ports in as early as the coming weeks.
