Sea trials for the ferry Tõll, which is being built for ferry operator TS Laevad, a subsidiary of the Estonian state-owned Port of Tallinn, at Remontowa Shipyard in Gdańsk, Poland, are slated to begin next week.

"The Polish shipyard is working on the final preparations for the sea trials of the ferry Tõll," Sirle Arro, director of the Marketing and Communication Department at the Port of Tallinn, told BNS.

According to Arro, the Polish shipbuilder is currently working on finishing the interior and fine-tuning the vessel's steering system.

Of the other three ferries commissioned for use on the subsidized routes connecting Estonia's mainland with its largest two western islands, the Leiger, built by Sefine Shipyard in Yalova, Turkey, is currently en route to Estonia, while the Tiiu and Piret are now expected to enter into service sometime next year.
