SeaDream Innovation Emphasizes Sustainability
Norway-based private cruise line SeaDream Yacht Club has released new details on its upcoming cruise ship, the SeaDream Innovation, which will incorporate a number of environmentally friendly design features.
The company claims that SeaDream Innovation is the world’s most advanced hybrid ship being built today that will sail to all seven continents.
SeaDream has received a grant for USD $1.8 million for the creation of the revolutionary vessel from Enova, an organization owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment that is responsible for the promotion of environmentally friendly production and consumption of energy.
"Enova strongly supports SeaDream and this new mega-yacht given its creative and sustainability-focused approach to energy and climate technology, a release said.
“We are extremely grateful that Enova supports our environmental efforts. Without this solid support from Enova, this would not have been possible,” said Atle Brynestad, owner of SeaDream.
“We are proud to contribute to the cruise industry by taking the lead in developing more environmentally friendly vessels that will also sail with the Norwegian flag. We are committed to having a positive impact on the environment, our employees, our guests, our suppliers and the places we visit."
Atle added: "In the future, we all need to make a positive contribution to our environment and the local communities we visit, so guests can continue experiencing different local communities and enjoying the fantastic nature while using local services and making local purchases where possible.”
