(Margus Kaasik, Member of the Management Board of Eesti Gaas - On LNG bunker vessel)

- Since 2016, Eesti Gaas has expanded its LNG transport and bunkering capacity by entering into a long-term LNG bunker contract with Tallink whose experience with LNG over the last few years and technical expertise has been extremely valuable in developing the technical concept of the new bunker vessel. Today we are the biggest LNG bunker service provider in the region and a key promoter of LNG as clean marine fuel.

By creating a mobile LNG-fuelling infrastructure, the LNG bunker vessel incentivises the construction and use of new LNG-fuelled vessels in the Baltic Sea Region and, therefore, has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions.
