STENA RORO ACQUIRES

ROPAX VESSEL IN JAPAN

Stena RoRo has purchased the RoPax-vessel Yamato from the Japanese shipping company Hankyu Ferry. The vessel will be rebuilt at a shipyard in Europe and be fully adapted to European standards, after which it will be chartered out. This process will begin in spring 2020 and is estimated to be in traffic by the summer.

“This is a typical Stena RoRo project. Through adaptation and flexibility, we design and rebuild vessels to meet our customers’ specific requirements. It’s what we call Stenability”, comments Mikael Abrahamsson, Conversion and Project Manager, Stena RoRo.

“On the European market, demand is greater than avail-ability for this type of vessel, which is why we have turned to the Asian market, primarily Japan”, concludes Per Westling, CEO Stena RoRo.
