MSC Cruises to sail world’s first net zero cruise

Sunday, 26 May, 2023 0

MSC Cruises will next week operate what it calls the industry’s first net zero cruise.

It takes place on new MSC Cruises flagship, the LNG-powered MSC Euribia as it leaves the shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.

The ship sails to Copenhagen, Denmark for a naming ceremony.

The 22nd vessel to join MSC Cruises’ fleet sails for four days from Saint-Nazaire to Copenhagen.

Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman, said: “This industry-first net zero gas emissions voyage heralds another significant step on our decarbonisation journey.”

MSC Cruises purchased 400 tonnes of bio-LNG fuel

The line is the industry’s first deep sea ocean cruise operator to buy bio-LNG as a fuel source.

The entire supply chain will be fully compliant with the European Union’s Renewable Energy Directive, commonly known as RED II.

MSC Cruises is being supported by Nordic energy company Gasum for the net zero greenhouse gas emissions voyage.

MSC Cruises’ newbuilds are fuel flexible ships that can accommodate a variety of renewable fuels.
