Tallink Grupp connects first two vessels to shore power at Port of Stockholm
Tallink Grupp 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 in the Nordic capital cities the company’s vessels visit. Silja Symphony and Silja Serenade, sister ships operating on the Helsinki-Stockholm route, have been piloting use of the shore power connection facility since February this year and are the two first vessels to be connected to the new facility aiming to minimize the environmental impact from ships within the Baltic Sea region.
