Technical works for MyStar continue at Rauma shipyard

22.11.2022

Before the finished ship is delivered to the customer, MyStar goes through sea trials, which is the last phase of shipbuilding. During the trials, a comprehensive technical inspection of the ship’s equipment as well as various loading tests are conducted.  

One of the two anomalies discovered during MyStar’s sea trials in early November has now been sorted out. During last weekend’s sea trials, it was discovered that the propulsion system needs further adjustments.   

After technical works are completed, the ship will go on another sea trial for a final technical inspection. After a successful sea trial, the ship will be ready to be handed over to Tallink. The exact date of the delivery will be announced later.  

MyStar will be the most technologically advanced and energy-efficient vessel on its route. The ship has five eight-cylinder multi-fuel engines that can use liquefied natural gas (LNG).
