TT Line green ferry

The 'Greenest' Ferries in TT-Line History

Green is the colour most associated with money and the environment. With TT- Line’s new Green Ships, and our industry-leading rates, you can save both.

The planning stage, which began in 2016, has culminated in the development of the “greenest” ferries in TT- Line’s history, and in the history of the Baltic Sea.

One of the operator’s newest Green Ships, the Nils Holgersson, is 230m in length and is named after the titular character from the classic Swedish children’s story “Nils Holgersson’s wonderful journey through Sweden''.

With a freight capacity for articulated trucks, containers and trailers of 200+, and a maximum passenger capacity of 800, the vessel uses Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG); the cleanest available marine fuel.

What is LNG?

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. It’s sulphur-free

Large volumes of sulphur dioxide can potentially lead to a variety of health problems for humans and wildlife. Where Marine Gas Oil (MGO) can produce large amounts of sulphur dioxide, by making the switch to LNG, TT- Line are able to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions by 98%.

  1. It helps to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 82%

Increasing amounts of NO2 pollution can contribute to a wide array of environmental problems, including acid rain. The usage of MGO requires complicated exhaust gas treatment. But with LNG, the new TT-Line ships can bypass this process and reduce their nitrogen oxide output.

  1. It means less carbon dioxide in our atmosphere

Last but certainly not least, the use of LNG in TT- Line’s new ships can reduce the overall output of carbon dioxide by up to 66% per unit of freight. This has a huge impact on our environment by reducing air pollution.

What features do the new TT- Line Green Ships have?

The new group of sustainable ships from TT-Lines aren’t just environmentally friendly. For example, the RoPax ferry Nils Holgersson has many enticing features, including (but not limited to):

  • A sundeck
  • Pet lounge
  • Trucker Lounge
  • Trucker Balcony
  • Sauna
  • Restaurant
  • Kiosk and bar

And much more.

With Freightlink, you can enjoy all these benefits while transporting your goods and save your business money with our industry-leading rates.

The Nils Holgersson will travel between Lithuania and Sweden (Klaipeda ⇄ Trelleborg), Poland and Sweden (Swinoujscie ⇄ Trelleborg) and Germany and Sweden (Travemunde ⇄ Trelleborg and Rostock ⇄ Trelleborg). Meanwhile, freight tickets include berth in a shared cabin and complementary meals.
