LNG discount in Tallinn

From the beginning of this year, ships using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as their primary fuel can apply for a 4% discount on tonnage fees when calling at the Port of Tallinn's harbours.

The goal is to contribute to the adoption of eco-friendly technologies in the Baltic Sea shipping sector.

In addition, the port authority plans to continue a policy of environmentally differentiation port fees, among many, by implementing in the future the Environmental Ship Index energy performance system developed by the World Ports Climate Initiative.

There are already other eco-incentives provided by the Port of Tallinn. For instance, scrubber waste is accepted without an additional charge, whereas cruise ships that sort their waste receive a discount on the waste fee.

"Similarly to other ports in the European Union and Norway, the Port of Tallinn has set a course toward environmentally differentiated port fees, with the aim of reducing the amount of air pollution and marine pollution from ships' waste handling and gaseous emissions," Ellen Kaasik, Head of Quality and Environmental Management Department, the Port of Tallinn, said.
