Tallink Grupp’s new shuttle vessel MyStar start of operations delayed

Tallink Grupp’s new Tallinn-Helsinki route shuttle vessel MyStar, which was due to start operating on the route next Thursday, 1 December, will not yet be launched on the route as planned. During the sea trials that took place last weekend, it transpired that the vessel’s propulsion systems need further adjustments and alignment, and the shipyard needs more time to carry out these technical works.

„Unfortunately, the results of the latest sea trials were unsatisfactory, so the vessel returned to Rauma shipyard yesterday morning for additional works. We continue to cooperate closely with the shipyard, to ensure that the best possible vessel is delivered to the route, and we are not willing to compromise on any technical issues, so work will continue as long as it takes to resolve everything outstanding. At present we are awaiting new information from Rauma shipyard on when all the necessary works will be completed, when the vessel will be ready to go to the final sea trials and when we can expect delivery of the vessel,“ Tarvi-Carlos Tuulik, Head of Ship Management and Chief Captain of Tallink Grupp, said.

Tallink apologises to all customers who have purchased tickets specifically for MyStar departures over the last few months, and will announce a new start date of MyStar operations as soon as this information is available.

Due to delays with MyStar operations, Tallink Grupp’s shuttle vessels Star and Megastar will continue to operate in their current and normal shuttle schedule with six departures each per day until MyStar is launched on the route.
