Eesti Gaas picked as Megastar’s LNG supplier
Eesti Gaas and Tallink Grupp have signed a five-year framework agreement for the supply of LNG to the latter’s fast ferry the Megastar vessel traveling between Tallinn and Helsinki.
The new agreement continues on the cooperation started last January, Ants Noot, chairman of the management board of Eesti Gaas said. He added that this was the company’s first major LNG project.
In 2017, 675 semi-trailers of LNG were bunkered to Megastar amounting to 12,312 tonnes (169.5 GWh), Eesti Gas said.
LNG was brought mainly from Pskov but also from Finland and Poland. Megastar is bunkered in Vanasadam, directly from the LNG semi-trailer to the ship, two to four trailers per night depending on the vessel´s needs.
Eesti Gaas claims it is currently the first and the only company in the Baltics and Poland that has developed LNG delivery and bunkering capability and is ready to provide service to all ports in the region.
