Finnish engine maker, Wärtsilä has signed a five-year maintenance agreement with Estonia-based Tallink Grupp for their new RoPax LNG-fueled ferry Megastar.
Megastar starts operation on 29 January 2017 on the Tallinn – Helsinki route across the Gulf of Finland.
The ferry is powered by Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines which operate primarily on liquefied natural gas (LNG), to meet the requirements of environmental legislation.
Under the deal, Wärtsilä will optimise the vessel’s performance, enhance its availability and reliability, and improve financial predictability for Tallink.
The agreement also includes maintenance and optimisation of the vessel’s engines as well as the supply of spare parts and 24/7 online support.
