Tallink Grupp’s Tallinn–Helsinki route shuttle vessel Megastar will go for its first regular dry-docking since the vessel first started operating on the route in January 2017 to Naantali shipyard in Finland in January 2022. The vessel will be in the dock for technical maintenance between 11-16 January 2022.
During the docking, the vessel will go through the standard and required class renewal process, maintenance of underwater hull and several of the ship’s systems, valves, pumps, etc and installation of the high-voltage shore power systems in order for the vessel to be connected to the shore power systems during longer port-stays. In addition to technical maintenance and upgrades, passenger areas of the vessel will also be updated and refreshed.
