Riigilaevastik, Estonia’s state-owned maritime company, has announced plans to launch a procurement tender in September for the construction of a new ferry for the Virtsu-Kuivastu route.

The new ferry will incorporate advanced green technology, including hydrogen fuel cells and batteries, ensuring zero emissions. This vessel, which will be smaller than initially planned, is designed to accommodate up to 700 passengers and 200 vehicles, enhancing the efficiency of the current fleet.

The ferry is expected to start operations by October 2026.
