German ferry operator TT-Line has started using its LNG-powered RoPax ferry, Nils Holgersson, in the Baltic Sea.
The 230-meter-long vessel was on Wednesday morning located in Sweden’s Trelleborg after departing from Germany’s Travemünde, its AIS data shows.
TT-Line said in a statement last week that the ship had arrived in Germany following a long trip from China.
China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing delivered the vessel to the owner during a ceremony held on March 7.
The Chinese yard is also building a sister ship which it launched in July last year.
Both of the vessels feature MAN dual-fuel engines and two 500-cbm type C LNG tanks, according to TT-Line.
The ships, based on TT-Line’s ‘Green Ship’ design, will have the capacity for 800 passengers and over 200 vehicles, and will both work in the Baltic Sea.
