The Port of Helsinki’s new West Terminal 2 officially started operations with the visit from Eckerö Line’s MS Finlandia, deployed on the Helsinki–Tallinn route, on June 12, 2017.
Full operations were launched after the installation of the last missing piece, the disembarkation bridge, on the Jätkäsaari-side berth in late May.
Manufactured by Spanish Adelte Ports & Maritime, the disembarkation bridge was connected to the terminal’s power supply and entered operation yesterday, when MS Finlandia docked at the West Terminal 2.
In addition to Eckerö Line, the new terminal will also be used by Tallink Silja’s Megastar and Star.
West Terminal 1 will continue to be used by Moby SPL’s Anastasia as well as Tallink Silja’s Europa.
