Cryo AB, a subsidiary of the Linde Group, has been awarded a contract by Meyer Turku Shipyard of Finland to build an LNG fuel gas system for a high speed ferry being built for AS Tallink Grupp.
The LNG-fuelled ferry, which will operate in the Baltic Sea between Helsinki (Finland) and Tallinn (Estonia), has been designed to comply with the European Emission Control Area (ECA) limits.
The LNG fuel gas system consists of two horizontal, vacuum-insulated 300 m³ tanks plus gas handling and control systems. It will supply natural gas to the vessel's dual-fuel engines.
Lars Persson, Managing Director of Cryo AB, said: "With this project, AS Tallink Grupp and the marine industry takes an important step to contribute to a green Baltic Sea. We are very proud to have been awarded this prestigious contract by Meyer Turku, which shows once again the strong market recognition for our LNG solutions, which are designed to meet the future needs of large roll-on/roll-off passenger vessels."
In June 2014, the Finnish Transport Agency commissioned Cryo AB to build an LNG fuel gas system for a new icebreaker.
