Tallink Secures LNG Supply for New Ferry Megastar

Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp has signed supply contracts for liquefied natural gas (LNG) with partners both in Finland and Estonia to be prepared for the launch of the new LNG-driven fast ferry Megastar.

The ferry, which will start operating on the Helsinki-Tallinn route next year, will be supplied with LNG by the AS Eesti Gaas in Estonia and by Skangas in Finland.

“With Eesti Gaas and Skangas we feel well prepared to welcome the new member, fast passenger ferry Megastar to our fleet, to serve one of our most important and busiest routes,” Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, Head of Shipmanagement in AS Tallink Grupp, said.

Featuring a length of 212 meters, Megastar will be able to accommodate a total of 2800 passengers.

The 49,000 gross ton vessel will use LNG as fuel, but will also be able to run on marine diesel.

Designed for the Tallinn-Helsinki route, Megastar will comply with the current and future emission regulations for the ECAs (Emission Control Area), including the Baltic Sea, according to Tallink Grupp.
