Swedish ferry operator Stena Line has renewed its planned maintenance agreement with MacGregor, part of Finnish Cargotec. 

Covering a total of 39 roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels owned by Stena Line, the agreement encompasses annual inspections, condition surveys, spare parts stock inventories and basic equipment adjustments.

The contract includes ferries serving operations for Stena Line Scandinavia AB, Stena Line BV and Northern Marine Ferries and sailing on 22 routes in the Baltic Sea, North Sea, the English Channel and the Irish Sea.

“Over the years, Stena has steadily increased the number of vessels covered by the contract from 20 to 39 vessels,” Magnus Göransson, MacGregor Branch Manager for Denmark and Sweden, said.

Each MOC agreement is tailored to meet the needs of individual operators, according to MacGregor.

“Stena’s renewed MOC agreements ensure that key equipment – from MacGregor and a range of other manufacturers – on board the vessels is maintained in good order at the optimum time, minimising the risk of downtime. Remedial measures can be used to rectify a problem with minimal impact on availability,” MacGregor said.
