Stena Trusts MacGregor

Stena Trusts MacGregor

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received a contract from Stena North Sea Ltd to convert the 29,800gt RoPax ferry Dieppe Seaways to optimise it for its new route between Dublin and Holyhead in Ireland.


MacGregor’s RoRo conversion team is no stranger to the vessel, which will be renamed Stena Superfast X, originally altering the ferry in 2008 to suit new operations across the English Channel. Its present needs dictate a return to the vessel’s original design.

“MacGregor’s long relationship and close cooperation with Stena RoRo on previous conversion and newbuilding projects secured the order,” said Stefan Wide, Director of RoRo Conversion & Port Solutions at MacGregor.

MacGregor will supply a complete ‘turnkey’ delivery of RoRo cargo access equipment which includes the design, hardware and installation of bow doors, a bow ramp, a new watertight door and a stern ramp. The installation will be completed in January 2015.

The contract also included a wide range of feasibility studies to verify the interfaces between the onboard ramps and port-side equipment.
