AIDAperla has now started her journey to Europe where she will be deployed. The ship will be christened on June 30 2017 in Palma de Mallorca. Together with her sister, AIDAperla shares the record of the largest cruise ship ever built in Japan.

Designed by PSD from Hamburg, she has 18 decks and is equipped with 12 restaurants and 18 bars including an on-board brewery. AIDAperla will offer several indoor amenities to the guests such as a Theatrium (multipurpose 3 stories theatre and atrium), as well as wellness area, discotheque and a complete gym. On the upper deck, the passengers will be dazzled by the domes, two separate pool areas completely covered by foil that will allow to enjoy the pool also in the colder days.

Novenco Marine & Offshore as a green partner
The ship has been designed with the highest consideration to the product quality and environmental friendliness. Novenco Marine & Offshore was involved since the very first phase of the project and selected to design an energy efficient system. Innovative technologies have been implemented all over the vessel to offer the passenger the best comfort with the least energy consumption. Novenco Marine & Offshore, with a project office in Nagasaki and operated with European and Japanese staff, has established a close cooperation with the shipyard in order to support and advice on every decision related to the HVAC. 

Novenco Marine & Offshore has designed and supplied the completed HVAC system which includes: 71 air handling units equipped with frequency converter and enthalpy wheels, more than 150 single fans, 130 ceiling mounted fan coil units powered by EC motors and more than 1700 fan coils serving the passenger accommodation. All the components are controlled and monitored by a dedicated supervision system developed by Novenco Marine & Offshore for this project. The supervisor system, only for the HVAC system, handles more than 17,000 signals.

Novenco Marine & Offshore is proud to have been the HVAC partner for this challenging project and forward to AIDA the best wishes to take delivery of this remarkable ship.
