Swedish ferry company Stena Line has increased its capacity between Karlskrona and Gdynia with the addition of another ship on the route.

The company said that its 170-meter-long Stena Nordica entered the service as the fourth ship to connect the Sweden and Poland on October 6, in an effort to meet the strong demand in growth for freight and passengers.

Previously, the route was operated with three RoPax vessels and one cargo vessel. With Stena Nordica, the route is now operating with four RoPax vessels, which will provide freight and passengers with a choice of up to four departures a day from each port.

“We have had strong growth in recent years, and we are still experiencing a strong demand for increased capacity from both freight customers and passengers. This means we must continue to invest and adjust our tonnage to match the needs of our customers, and to add the Stena Nordica on this route is a very important step,” Marek Kiersnowski, Trade Director of Stena Line’s routes between Sweden and Poland, said.

The 2000-built Stena Nordica, which has been refurbished and modernized both internally and externally, will sail on the route with Stena Vision, Stena Spirit and Stena Baltica.

The unit has a passenger capacity of 450 and a loading capacity of 1,950 lane meters.
