Ship News

September 2019

AIDAperla will be the first ship to be fitted with lithium-ion batteries from Corvus, produced in Norway, in 2020. The 300-meter-long cruise ship receives a battery pack capable of generating a total output of 10 MWh. As of today this will be the largest battery storage system worldwide to be ever installed on a passenger ship.

The battery systems can be charged with shore power and during sea operation (peak load shaving). In addition to pure battery operation, the systems may also contribute for an extended period of time, e.g. during port mooring or during ship maneuvers. Thanks to the use of this technology, the consumption of fossil fuel will reduced further and the efficiency of ship operations will be increased significantly.
It is planned to incorporate the experiences from this pilot operation of battery systems on board other AIDA and Costa cruise ships as well.
