AIDAcosma starts overpassing the river Ems

AIDAcosma - Ems transfer after midnight today

After a construction period of more than two years, the AIDAcosma is leaving the shipyard in Papenburg tonight and starting the Ems transfer to Eemshaven (NL). With the AIDAcosma, MEYER WERFT is delivering the third cruise ship equipped with a low-emission LNG drive.

Today, in the night from Friday to Saturday, the ship giant, measured at around 183.900 GT, will start shortly after midnight from the MEYER WERFT port in Papenburg. the AIDAcosma travels the Ems stern first, as is usual with ship transfers from Papenburg. Two tugs assist the ship's command. Tomorrow at 16:30pm the Emspassage will be behind the ship. Then it is turned in the direction of travel at the level of the city of Emden. The information depends on the wind and weather conditions. Of course, the water levels are also crucial for a smooth process. A team from the Emden Brotherhood of Pilots is responsible for the Ems passage. The passage of the ship across the Ems takes place with the support of the Ems barrier.

In “normal” times, the shipyard would not have required a statement on health issues: around 1.400 people were on board during the Ems overpass and the subsequent technical and nautical test drives on the North Sea. 99 percent of passengers have a full Covid-19 vaccination; the rest have recovered and / or tested.

Technical information about AIDAcosma:

The 337 meter long ship has twenty decks. The number of cabins is given as 2.600. With double occupancy that would result in 5.200 passengers. At the stern, the future flagship of the AIDA shipping company has a fun park with a children's pool, a double water slide and the water slide. Sun worshipers enjoy the three tiered sundecks. Guests are spoiled with culinary delights in 17 restaurants. No less than 23 bars are available.
