MEYER WERFT shows technology leadership

back to overview

MEYER WERFT stands for quality and innovation in the ship building industry. The latest example for that is the delivery of AIDAnova, the world’s first low emission LNG-powered cruise ship, in 2018. The company now presents itself for the 10th time in a row as the technology leader in cruise ship building at Seatrade Europe Hamburg.

As just one of a few companys, MEYER WERFT is participating the trade fair from the beginning and traditionally focuses on new technologies. MEYER WERFT is the only exhibitor that has already realized the shift to alternative propulsion systems.

Currently 14 LNG-powered cruise ships are on order at MEYER WERFT and MEYER TURKU by international customers. These are AIDA Cruises (2 ships), P&O Cruises (2 ships), Disney Cruise Line (3 ships), Costa Crociere (2 ships), Carnival Cruise Line (2 ships) snd Royal Caribbean International (3 ships).

That makes 74 percent of the order book at MEYER WERFT and 93 percent of the order book at MEYER TURKU by tonnage. Therefore MEYER Group is the world market leader in the construction and building of environmental friendly LNG cruise ships. Additionally NEPTUN WERFT has gained enormous know-how in the building of LNG-tanks and LNG engine room units.

MEYER WERFT is executing several research and development projects to further reduce the emissions of cruise ships.
