Stena RoRo signs contract for a ninth Stena E-Flexer

This is a continuation of the eight newbuildings already ordered and Stena RoRo has an option for another two ships. The vessel, which will operate on LNG, has been signed for a long-term charter with Brittany Ferries. Delivery is set for autumn 2023.


Long charter contracts have thus been signed with Brittany Ferries for a total of three vessels, whereof two will operate on LNG-fuel. The keel of the first vessel was laid in a ceremony in January in the shipyard. These three newbuilds will complement the company’s current fleet of high class freight and passenger vessels.

”We are very pleased to have placed another order with the AVIC shipyard, with which we have had a very positive cooperation over the last three years. Theshipyard hasbeen able to meet our demands for flexibilityand thereby enabled us to serve our customers with tailormade products. The newly signed third charter contract with Brittany Ferries is a further proof of this”, comments Per Westling, CEO Stena RoRo.

The E-Flexer models will be significantly larger than the current ropax model standard ferries, said Stena RoRo. "They are at the forefront in terms of sustainability and will create a new standard for emissions, cost and energy efficiency, as well as performance.

The vessels are 214.5m long, 27.8m wide and draft is 6.4m. They have 2,750 lane metres, with 340 cabins and capacity for 1000 pax.
