Norwegian maritime solutions provider Høglund Marine Solutions has been contracted to supply fuel gas supply systems (FGSS) to Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) for Tallink Grupp’s newest LNG powered ferry, MySTAR.   

Høglund will work with Finnish tank manufacturer West Welding to design and supply the systems that will handle LNG onboard MySTAR, constructed by Rauma Marine Constructions.

MySTAR will sail on Tallink’s Tallinn – Helsinki route, Høglund’s statement reads.

Høglund’s FGSS solutions are integrated with the ship’s IAS (Integrated Automation System) which enables better access to data in the system for playback, analysis and optimization.

Following on from Tallink’s latest vessel, Megastar, the new shuttle ferry MyStar will be dual fuel operated with an overall length of 212m and a passenger capacity of 2,800.

Delivery is scheduled for January 2022 and production will start during spring 2020.
