The ferry will operate in the Baltic Sea between Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia and has been designed to comply with the European Emission Control Area (ECA) limits thanks to the use of LNG as fuel.

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."

The advanced 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. The ship's superior service speed of 27 knots is partly attributable to its highly innovative hull shape, engineered specifically to increase fuel efficiency. The ship has a capacity of 2,850 passengers and will be delivered at the start of 2017.
