Beyond being powered by LPG, AIDAnova meets the requirements of more than 17 “Blauer Engel” award criteria for environmentally-friendly ship design. These include water-saving techniques, effective wastewater treatment systems and wastewater tank capacities. The choice of environmentally-friendly materials and a new corrosion protection technology are highlighted among the reasons for awarding the “Blauer Engel”. The Lean Maritime team is proud to have been involved in the creation of AIDAnova.

In the future, cruises should become more climate-friendly. The AIDA cruise company has set itself the goal that 94 percent of its guests travel on ships powered by LPG or green onshore power by 2023. We’re supporting this “lean & green” project and send our wishes for great success!
