Estonia: Tallink’s vessel Romantika to be renewed at Nauta shipyard in Poland

BC, Tallinn, 13.01.2020.Print version
The listed Estonian shipper Tallink Grupp's vessel Romantika will set sail to Nauta Shipyard in Gdynia, Poland today, on Jan. 13 for scheduled maintenance and planned renewal works, reported LETA/BNS.

The vessel will stay in Nauta shipyard for nearly two weeks, returning to the Riga-Stockholm route on Saturday, Jan. 25.

During the scheduled docking, several key passenger areas will be renewed considerably and receive a complete overhaul according to the company's refreshed brand. In addition, regular technical maintenance works will be carried out on the vessel, Tallink said.

Like all vessels undergoing scheduled dockings in 2020, preparations will be made to the vessel for the use of high-voltage shore connection during port stays. Technical improvements will be made to the vessel to further enhance its energy efficiency and reduce emissions. 

Romantika is the third of Tallink Grupp's vessels to be refurbished in the first quarter of 2020. Also undergoing or already finished are renewal works on Tallink's Sea Wind, which operates the Muuga-Vuosaari route, and the Megastar shuttle on the Tallinn-Helsinki route.

Tallink runs a continuous ship renovation program, according to which all the group's vessels are updated and refreshed twice during a five-year period. In the last five years alone the company has invested nearly 90 mln euros into upgrading its vessels.
