This year, MEYER WERFT is delivering the Silver Nova To Silversea cruises, featuring a low-emission fuel system and energy-efficient design, exceeding the International Maritime Organization’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) requirements by 25%. The ship will also use a fuel cell system developed in a multi-year research project.
Two more innovative ships are under construction at MEYER TURKU: Icon of the seassaid to be the largest cruise ship in the world, and my ship 7, designed to run on methanol and green methanol for near carbon neutral operation. The ships feature unique design features such as horizontal layout, asymmetrical design and expansive glass for unprecedented openness.
Looking to the future, the MEYER Group presented its “Reverse” concept, a vision for cruise ships in the year 2100. With an aerodynamic design, urban gardening areas, drone landing pads and modular manufacturing methods, the concept relies on renewable energy sources such as wave and solar energy, and wind power. The futuristic ship is also designed to use more sustainable materials and efficient use of energy.
The designs were unveiled last week at the Seatrade global cruise show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
