Sweden-based TT-Line, a ferry transportation firm for routes across the Baltic Sea, on Monday (10 December) signed a newbuilding contract for construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual fuelled RoPax ferry with Chinese shipyard Jiangsu Jinling. 

The contract, with option for another vessel, is scheduled for delivery by 2022.

“Maritime transportation is the most environmentally efficient way of transporting goods,” said Bernhard J. Termühlen, CEO of TT-Line.

“TT-Line will set a new standard for reducing harmful emissions by choosing LNG as fuel for its innovative Green Ship. 

“With its advanced and future-oriented technology, Green Ship becomes the most environmentally-friendly RoPax vessel in our geographical area of ??activity.”

The newbuilding will be able to accommodate 800 passengers and more than 200 trucks and trailers. Particular attention has been given to the design of the ship in terms of flexibility and fast turnaround calls in ports.

“We expect continued growing demand for short sea transport in the Baltic Sea,” notes Hanns H. Conzen, CEO of TT-Line.

“With this investment we can meet our customers' needs and support their growth in an even more efficient way. 

“At the same time, this vessel offers a modern and comfortable journey for our passengers in combination with the most environmentally friendly transport solution.”
