Ellex Raidla has advised Eesti Gaas on an agreement with the Tallink Group by which Eesti Gaas will provide the Megastar vessel operating between Tallinn and Helsinki with liquified natural gas.
According to Ellex Raidla, Megastar — which began operating in January 2017 — "will become the fastest cruise ship of Tallink, with a total length of 212 meters and taking on board up to 2800 passengers." The firm claims that although the vessel can also use regular fuel, "compared to regular vessels the ecological footprint of the vessel will be decreased notably by using liquified natural gas."
Both Tallink Group and Eesti Gaas are owned by Infortar.
Eesti Gaas was advised by Ellex Raidla Counsel Triin Frosch.
