Tallinn offers discount to ships running mainly on LNG

20 Dec 2017 14:20 GMT

Vessels will be able to apply for a four percent discount on tonnage fees.



The Port of Tallinn has announced that all vessels using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as their primary fuel will be able to apply for a four percent discount on tonnage fees when calling at harbours of the Estonian port.

The aim of the discount is to promote the adoption of eco-friendly technologies in the Baltic Sea.

"Similarly to other ports in the European Union and Norway, the Port of Tallinn has set a course toward environmentally differentiated port fees, with the aim of reducing the amount of air pollution and marine pollution from ships' waste handling and gaseous emissions," said Ellen Kaasik, Head of Quality and Environmental Management at the Port of Tallinn.

"While currently cruise ships that sort their waste receive a discount on the waste fee, next year we will introduce a discount on port infrastructure fees for all ships that use LNG as their primary fuel," Kaasik added.
