New environmentally friendly ferry in the Baltic Sea

Viking Line’s newest ship M/S Viking Grace is the most environmentally friendly cruiseferry of all-time.

The ship with its route from Turku to Stockholm has been sailing since the mid of January 2013.
With an impressive length of 214 meters and width of 31,8 meters the ship has a cargo capacity of 1275 lane meters. Designed to operate in delicate archipelago conditions the ferry creates minimal noise pollution or waves.
The most decisive feature of the ship is its Liquified Natural Gas fuel system.
Utilising the latest environment technology the ship fulfills the new sulphur directives established by the EU.

The new directive taking effect in 2015 limits the sulphur contents of maritime fuel from 1% to 0,1% in the Baltic Sea, North Sea as well as the English Channel.
