Hapag-Lloyd Cruises: new ship sets environmental benchmarks

TUI’s subsidiary Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ new ship HANSEATIC nature has been en route from Greenland to the Amazon and Antarctica since early May 2019. The 240-passenger cruise liner far surpasses statutory environmental requirements. In very climate-relevant regions, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises uses low-emission marine gas oil as a fuel. The expedition fleet will use marine gas oil on all routes from July 2020 onwards. The HANSEATIC nature is fitted with an SCR catalytic converter, which reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by almost 95 percent. It is also the first of three identically designed ships in the new expedition class to use eco-friendly shore power. Local authorities and governments are now tasked with establishing appropriate infrastructures at the cruise ship ports.
