TT-Line and the Port of Trelleborg have signed a new 10-year agreement.
This means a long-term perspective of port operations and thus consolidating its position as Scandinavia’s largest ro-ro port, the port said.
TT-Line has seen a substantial increase in volumes in recent years and is Trelleborg’s largest customer.
Currently, the ropax operator has seven vessels operating between Trelleborg and Travemünde, Rostock, Swinoujscie and Klaipeda.
In 2022, the first of the two ‘Green Ships’, is expected to be be delivered. The ropax will be 230 m long and environmentally friendly, as she will also be able to be powered by LNG.
“We are looking very much forward to further develop our 6o years of successful co-operation,” said Hanns Conzen, TT-Line Managing Director (pictured, right).
“With our LNG newbuildings coming next year, we will be able to offer our customers not only the capacity they need but also the most environmentally friendly transport solution in the Baltic Sea,” added the line’s Bernhard Termühlen.
“It is extremely gratifying that TT-Line chooses to extend its agreement and sees the potential with Port of Trelleborg’s unique geographical location.
“It is of great value to us as a port that TT-Line offers as many as four destinations and we look forward to additional capacity with the two new Green Ships. With tomorrow’s new vessels, loading and unloading of freight will be even more efficient and flexible and means that we will be competitive to meet increased freight volumes,” said Jörgen Nilsson, Port of Trelleborg CEO.
The new agreement is valid from 1st January, 2022, to 31st December, 2031.
