Valmet automation system for Tallink's LNG ferry

Valmet Corporation informed that it will supply an automation system for the LNG-powered fast ferry for the Tallinn-Helsinki route shuttle operations between Estonia and Finland.

The vessel will be built by the Meyer Turku shipyard in Turku, Finland and will be operated by Tallink. The automation system will be delivered in April 2016, Valmet said in a statement.

The automation will control and monitor the machinery systems and the electric power management system, and include an emergency shutdown system (ESD).

Valmet’s engineering team will handle the project from detailed design, programming and testing to onboard commissioning and completed sea trials.

The new ship will be 212 meters in length and have a passenger capacity of 2,800, a gross tonnage of 49,000 and service speed of 27 knots. It uses LNG as fuel and will comply with the new and stricter emission regulations for the Emission Control Areas including the Baltic Sea.

The ship is due to be delivered at the beginning of 2017.
