According to the cruise line, the destination was chosen as 'its port has a rich maritime heritage and Denmark is a country with a deep respect for the sea and commitment to sustainability.’
‘MSC is a close partner and important customer to us, and we are excited to witness the efforts they put into creating a modern fleet with state-of-the-art technologies to minimise the footprint of tourism and transportation,’ said Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO, Copenhagen Malmö Port.
‘These efforts go hand in hand with our ambition to become one of the most sustainable ports in the world. The arrival of MSC Euribia inspires us to continuously work hard and dedicatedly to secure a green transition.’
The 181,541gt vessel will become the line’s second ship to be powered by LNG. It will feature state-of-the-art environmental technologies including a ‘Baltic Standard’ advanced onboard wastewater treatment system, waste management handling, energy efficiency measures and shore power connectivity.
Designed by German graphic artist, Alex Flaemig, MSC Euribia will feature a painted fresco on its exterior that represents MSC Cruises’ commitment to protect and preserve the marine environment.
