The Tallink group chose Skangas as one of their LNG partners for the new LNG driven fast ferry Megastar. The two companies signed a contract securing the LNG fuelled ferry in Helsinki.
Tallink’s LNG-fuelled fast ferry M/S Megastar bunkered LNG for the first time at Skangas’ Pori LNG terminal on 4 January.
The LNG-fuelled ferry is compliant with the new, stricter emission regulations of Emission Control Areas (ECAs) such as the Baltic Sea.
Megastar is 212 m long and can accommodate 2800 passengers. The fast ferry will operate between Helsinki and Tallinn at a service speed of 27 knots.
In October, Tallink Grupp signed the LNG supply deal with Skangas in Finland and Eesti Gaas in Estonia, with Skangas delivering LNG for Megastar’s sea trials.
