TGE Marine to deliver environmentally friendly LNG fuel systems for the next AIDA generation 2015/2016
18 Jul 2013
TGE Marine Gas Engineering has been awarded by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to deliver two complete LNG fuel systems. The systems will be installed on the new generation of cruise ships which Mitsubishi Heavy Industries currently builds for AIDA Cruises from Rostock/Germany belonging to the Carnival Group. The 124,500 dwt ships will be delivered in 2015 and 2016 and will be the first cruise vessels in the world fitted with dual fuel engines, meaning that they can also run on liquefied gas, depending on its availability at the port.
For TGE Marine Gas Engineering the contract with MHI for a world-leading cruise line is a great success in recognition of the company’s efforts in developing environmentally friendly fuel gas systems for the marine industry.
