Back in November 2018, the Estonian ferry line and the Finnish Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) signed a letter of intent, which now was turned into a shipbuilding contract, the biggest in the shipyard's history.
The ferry company and the university, both based in Tallinn, have started a two year-long €100k scientific collaboration, the aim of which is to develop technologies for making car deck operations more efficient.
The Swedish company serving ferry traffic in the Stockholm archipelago has put in operation Yxlan, a diesel-electric vessel built by the Estonian Baltic Workboats and equipped with a hybrid drive from Danfoss Editron.
Year 2018 is drawing to its conclusion. The past months, alike life itself, were full of ups and downs. It was a real Dickens of a job putting all the issues of the Baltic Transport Journal and the Harbours Review together - dozens of articles and hundreds of news items and Market SMSes, not to mention all the add-ons, such as our maps or the Baltic Yearbook.
