“Silver Ray” masters the Ems passage

The “Silver Ray”, the latest cruise ship built by Meyer Werft, has been successfully transferred across the Ems to the North Sea.

The newbuild has reached Eemshaven and was moored in the harbour there without incident. In the coming days, technical and nautical trials will be carried out at sea before the ship is handed over to the client, Silversea Cruises. [ds_preview]

Under the command of shipyard captain Wolfgang Thos, the 244-meter-long and 30-meter-wide cruise ship was manoeuvred across the river stern-first with the support of two tugboats. This type of crossing has proven its worth due to its improved manoeuvrability when passing bridges and the Ems barrier.

“Silver Ray” sets new standards

The “Silver Ray”, like its sister ship the “Silver Nova“, sets new standards for environmental protection and luxury expedition cruising with a number of innovations. Thanks to an innovative fuel concept with low-emission LNG, batteries and later also a fuel cell system, the new ship has the best possible measures currently available to significantly reduce emissions.

The transfer of the ship was once again carried out by the team from the Emden Pilot Brotherhood. The “Silver Ray” was the 50th ship to make its way to the North Sea with the support of the Emssperrwerk. It is the second and, for the time being, the last ship in this series.
