Successful delivery of LNG fuel gas system for “AIDAnova”

Hamburg based Marine Service GmbH has successfully delivered the LNG fuel gas system for the recently delivered “AIDAnova” which is the world’s first cruise vessel operating both at sea and in port on liquefied natural gas (LNG), the most environmentally friendly and lowest-emission fossil fuel available today.

The ship has been built at Meyer Werft in Papenburg for the cruise operator AIDA Cruises of Carnival Corporation.

Marine Service GmbH was entrusted with the design and delivery of the fuel gas supply system. The main components supplied by Marine Service GmbH are LNG pumps, gas compressors, cryogenic valves, vaporizers and superheaters as well as glycol water modules, which use the waste heat from the main engines and supply it to the vaporizers and superheaters to evaporate and heat up the fuel gas. Furthermore, all electrical components including the pneumatic interfaces and the PLC controlled automation system are in the scope of supply of Marine Service GmbH. The system is designed in a way that if one component fails, the level of redundancy is high enough that a gas operation is still possible and safe. Marine Service GmbH supplied the operation manuals and trained the LNG plant operators of the shipyard and the crew on site during commissioning.
