Weeks before its 130th anniversary, Hurtigruten Norway unveiled plans for its first zero-emission ship. Initially announced in March 2022, under project name ‘Sea Zero,’ the first-of-its-kind initiative has revealed early concept plans for the world’s most energy-efficient cruise ship.
Hurtigruten Norway presented the findings alongside its consortium of 12 maritime partners and research institute SINTEF, all joined in the pursuit of achieving emission-free marine travel. Tasked with developing energy-efficient and carbon-neutral technology solutions, the consortium shared key findings following its first year of research.
The Cruise Division of MSC Group and Chantiers de l’Atlantique today celebrated the delivery of MSC Euribia for the Company’s MSC Cruises brand, a vessel which features the most energy-efficient cruise ship design ever.
The delivery marked yet another significant step on the journey to decarbonise the Cruise Division’s fleet and effectively demonstrates what the future of cruising will look like.
MSC Cruises will operate the cruise industry’s first net zero greenhouse gas emissions voyage when its latest ship, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered MSC Euribia, leaves the shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France – where she is currently being buil, on its way to her naming ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The new ship, the 22nd vessel to join MSC Cruises’ fleet, will sail for four days from Saint-Nazaire to Copenhagen and achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions to demonstrate that net zero cruising is possible today. MSC Euribia will depart the French port on 3 June and is scheduled to arrive in the Danish city on 7 June.
