Germans Can Still Be Awesome, Sometimes

AIDAnova
About time they got rid of those diesel gulping giants and replace them with something more reasonable

What I find more interesting is how this medium sized shipyard in Germany’s hinterland pushes out one mega-ship after the other. Often the ships they build can only sail down the river to the north sea if the tide is high and police opens all the bridges at the right time. Still Meyer builds giant after giant with often highly interesting technical concepts. In this case it’s the liquiefied gas-powered engines. I wonder why nobody’s thought of that concept earlier. On land whole bus and taxi flottillas are already gas-powered, why not for marine uses as well?
