On Friday 6th of December 2019, Meyer Turku sent off the latest luxury cruise vessel built at the shipyard. The vessel was handed over to a voyage towards Barcelona with a maximum traveling speed reaching 17 knots.

Costa Smeralda is coated with Jotun’s high quality marine coatings to provide protection in rough sea conditions. Meyer Turku uses Jotun products supplied by Nor-Maali Oy, for reasons such as reliable and fast deliveries and low VOC emission products.

While designing the vessel, many environmental factors were kept in mind. Costa Smeralda is the third LNG vessel, using liquefied natural gas as fuel, built at Meyer Turku Shipyard. The use of LNG does not emit sulfure oxides or fine particulates and significantly reduces the vessel’s nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions. Energy efficiency has been improved with LED lighting, elevators that restore energy to the electrical system and heat generated by the engines is collected and utilized. Daily drinking water is desalinated from seawater.

At the beginning of October, Costa Smeralda set sail for a week-long sea trial near Gotland in Sweden. These trials are used for testing things that would not be possible to test in the yard’s own pool, such as the vessels steering at sea.
