    Default Carnivals New Cruise Liners.

    The first block of the first of 3 new cruise liners for AIDA line (Another Carnival group cruise line) was laid in Meyer Werft in Pappenborg.
    What makes these different is that they are going to be powered totally by LNG.

    Hi John, Ferguson Marine, Port Glasgow, is launching a 100metre ferry power by liquid gas. The launch is later this month.

    A follow on from the LPG powered cars, which were very popular here in Oz but not so much now.
    Conversion to LPG was a big industry up to about 10 years ago and at one time Ford were producing LPG cars instead of petrol.

    New regs come into force from about 2020, you either retrofit scrubbers or run LNG.
    You wont be able to burn heavy fuel from western approaches into western europe.
    Most of tanks are double skinned vacuum, with insulation. LNG bunkers available in many areas already around Europe and Scandinavia

    Some years ago I watched a documentary on the building of a large cruise liner in that yard. To enable the liner to reach the sea it was necessary to dredge the river channel but there were huge objections to this from local green parties as a species of toads or some such other aquatic animal would have its habitat destroyed by such dredging. It got to such a stage that at one point it was feared that although the liner was built the yard would not be able to deliver it as they were not allowed to dredge the river. Sense eventually was able to overcome the objections of the greenies and they were allowed to dredge the river. Believe that to this day any vessel built under cover in that hardhats to towed out stern first for a considerable distance before it reaches a turning basin.

    That's what happened in the Somerset Levels a few years, dredging was banned-result widespread flooding when it rained heavily. The Greens had got dredging banned result rivers silted up.

    WE had Port Melbourne dredged some years ago.

    A group, mainly female, set them selves up in an attempt to stop it for occurring.

    They managed to convince a few that such dredging would allow twice as much water into the bay, much of the dredging as at the heads, that the city would flood.

    I often wonder where people get such crazy ideas from.
