Stena Line to Add Four New RoPax Ferries

Gothenburg-headquartered ferry company Stena Line has ordered four new RoPax ferries with planned delivery during 2019 and 2020, with an option for another four vessels, from AVIC Shipyard in China.

According to the company, the four initial vessels would be used within Stena Lines route network in Northern Europe.

“During the course of the past 24 months our engineering staff has managed to develop a design that is not only 50% larger than today’s standard RoPax vessels, but more importantly, incorporates the emission reduction and efficiency initiatives that have been developed throughout the Stena Group during the past years,” says Carl-Johan Hagman, Managing Director of Stena Line.

“These ships will be the most fuel efficient ferries in the world and will set a new industry standard when it comes to operational performance, emissions and cost competitiveness, positioning Stena Line to support its customers in the next decades,” Hagman said.

Under the contract, subject to board approval by the end of April, the shipyard would construct the vessels with a capacity of more than 3,000 lane meters in a drive-through configuration.

Featuring an accommodation capacity of about 1,000 passengers, the main engines aboard the new ferries will be ‘gas ready’ – prepared to be fueled by either methanol or LNG, Stena Line said.
