Construction has begun on Viking Line’s new liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered passenger cruise ship at the Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry shipyard in China.

The vessel, scheduled for delivery at the end 2020 will be deployed on the Turku (Finland)–Åland Islands–Stockholm (Sweden) route.

Viking Line’s new vessel will be 218 meters in length and have a gross registered tonnage of about 63,000 tons. Passenger capacity will be 2,800 people, and the length of its cargo lanes will be 1,500 meters.

The new vessel will be larger than LNG-fueled cruise ferry Viking Grace, but it is expected to consume up to 10 percent less fuel than the company’s first LNG ferry, according to Viking Line.
