AIDA Cruises, a Carnival Corporation company, said the first engine module for the LNG-powered AIDAnova has been completed at the Neptun Werft in Rostock. 

It is the first of two floating engine room units (FERU), a module 120-meters long, 42-meters wide and three decks high, which will hold four Caterpillar dual-fuel engines.

The vessel, which will join AIDA Cruises fleet in the fall of 2018 will be the first cruise ship to be powered by LNG in port and at sea.

The module is scheduled to be shipped from the Rostock shipyard to the Papenburg shipyard where it will be joined with other ship blocks currently under construction.

Once launched, the LNG-powered cruise ship AIDAnova will perform trips around the Canary Islands.
