Tallink Secures LNG Supply Deal for Its Megastar Vessel

Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp has signed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal for its Megastar vessel.

Under a framework agreement with compatriot natural gas company Eesti Gaas, the company’s Megastar vessel traveling between Tallinn and Helsinki would be supplied with LNG during the following five years.

In 2017, 675 semi-trailers of LNG were bunkered to Megastar amounting to 12,312 tonnes. LNG was brought mainly from Pskov but also from Finland and Poland.

Megastar is bunkered in Vanasadam, directly from the LNG semi-trailer to the ship, two to four trailers per night depending on the vessel’s needs.

From 2015, passenger and cargo vessels traveling on the Baltic Sea, including ferries between the islands of Estonia and the continent, must use more environmentally friendly fuel.

Switching to LNG completely diminishes sulphur oxide and fine particles and reduces nitrogen oxide emissions to minimum. CO2 emissions are also significantly reduced.
