Tallink Grupp Connects First Two Vessels to Shore Power at Port of Stockholm
Tallink has this week started using shore power to provide electricity for two of its vessels, SILJA SERENADE and SILJA SYMPHONY, while they are alongside in port to reduce the environmental impact of the vessels and to minimise air pollution.
The group’s Tallinn-Stockholm route vessels BALTIC QUEEN and VICTORIA I have also been fitted with the shore power connection equipment and will start testing the equipment soon. The company’s other vessels visiting the Port of Stockholm will follow suite in 2020 and 2021.
The Port of Stockholm is currently one of the few ports in the Baltic Sea region to have shore power connection available.
