10 May 2021Other Incidents

On May 10, 2021, with AIDAsol was inaugurated Europe's largest shore powerplant - having a power output of 20 MVA (megavolt amperes) and the ability to supply with electricity 2x cruise ships simultaneously - at Port Warnemunde's berths P7 and P8.

  • On September 19, 2018, Rostock Port Authority announced that by 2020 will be available shoreside-power connection capabilities in both seaports (Rostock and Warnemunde), providing berthed cruise vessels with shoreside electrical power.
  • Shoreside power (aka cold ironing, shore-to-ship power) allows docked ships to turn off their engines and use electricity supplied by the city's power network.
  • Warnemunde's shore powerplant was completed in 2020 summer.

AIDAsol requires 4,5 MWh (megawatts per hour) of electricity to keep onboard operations running while berthed/docked. Since 2017, AIDAsol uses electricity from Europe's first shore powerplant - at Port Hamburg's Altona Terminal.

The May 2021 ceremony was attended by Peter Altmaier (Germany's Federal Minister for Economic Affairs), Manuela Schwesig (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state's Prime Minister) and Felix Eichhorn (AIDA Cruises' President).

30 May 2015Other Incidents

On May 30, 2015, the vessel became the world's first ever cruise ship supplied with power from an LNG hybrid barge. The Hummel barge (Becker Marine Systems) provided 7,5 MW of power to the liner docked in Port Hamburg.

The LNG barge (length 76,7 m, width 11,4 m) was constructed by Becker Marine to serve as a floating power plant. It generates electrical power via a 15-ton LNG (liquefied natural gas) container. In its processing plant, the cryogenic liquid is heated and passed on to 5 Caterpillar motors producing electricity - without any sulfur emissions. The levels of NOx and COx emissions are significantly reduced. The technology is deemed the cleanest for shore-to-ship electrical power supply.
