New Baltic Sea ferry will be powered by environmentally sustainable Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines

A new fast ropax ferry ordered by the Estonia based Tallink Grupp for its Tallinn – Helsinki route, will feature Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines running primarily on liquefied natural gas (LNG). The ship is to be built at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland and is scheduled to be in operation from the beginning of 2017. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in February.
“The Wärtsilä engines are more energy efficient and thus consume less fuel, and for a next generation environmentally sustainable ferry that is what we were especially looking for.”

Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, Head of Shipmanagement of AS Tallink Grupp
