Carnival orders LNG-powered duo at Meyer Werft

Carnival Corporation has ordered two LNG-powered cruise ships at Meyer Werft for its Italy-based unit Costa Cruises.

The two ships will be built by Meyer shipyard in Turku, Finland, with delivery in 2019 and 2020.

Each of them will exceed 180,000 gross tonnage, offering more than 2,600 passenger cabins for a total of 6,600 passengers onboard, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Costa order is part of a multibillion dollar contract with two Meyer shipyards in Turku and Papenburg (Germany), including also two new ships for Aida Cruises.

The contract with Meyer is the result of a larger previously announced memo of understanding between Carnival Corporation and shipbuilders Meyer Werft, Meyer Turku and Fincantieri  for nine new ships between 2019 and 2022.

The new ships will use the chilled gas in dual-powered hybrid engines to power the ship both in port and on the open sea.
