THE E-FLEXERS MAKES THEIR DEBUT ON

THE IRISH SEA

After more than six years’ in planning and construction, Stena Line’s newest E-Flexer ferry Stena Estrid started service on the Irish Sea route from Dublin to Holyhead on January 13, 2020.

Sister ship Stena Edda was delivered a few days later and will enter in to operation in March 2020 on the Belfast-Liverpool (Birkenhead) route. A third vessel Stena Embla is expected to be introduced on the same route in early 2021.

Described as one of the most modern ferries in the world the E-Flexer vessels offers a range of excellent facilities on board, including the spectacular Sky Bar, two Happy World children’s play areas, a relaxing Hygge reclining lounge, Stena Plus lounge, two movie lounges, bigger Truckers lounge, Taste restaurant, and a bigger better shopping experience.

With 215 metres in length the Stena Estrid and her sisters are some of the most advanced RoPax vessels in the world and larger than today’s standard vessels, with space to carry 120 cars and 1,000 passengers, and a freight capacity of 3,100 lane meters, meaning a 25-50 per cent increase in freight tonnage on their new routes. The fuel efficiency is impressive, and the consumption is reduced with 25 per cent compared to existing tonnage. 

In addition to the three Irish Sea bound E-Flexer vessels, Stena Line has also ordered a further two E-Flexer RoPax vessels with a larger design, to be deployed within Stena Line’s network in 2022.

Stena Line passengers travelling between Dublin to Holyhead have given a major thumbs up to the brand-new ferry Stena Estrid in her first three weeks of operation. The spectacular ”Sky Bar” is one of many reasons.

You have two jobs onboard, the first one is your role in the safety organisation and the second your regular work tasks. This is the foundation of what over 400 seasonal recruits are being taught at Öckerö Martime Center in the Gothenburg archipelago, West Sweden, during the spring. Stena Line has placed a real evacuation system here that releases into the water – the only one in Northern Europe.

STENA LINE OPENS NEW ROUTE TO FINLAND

In recent months, Stena Line has heavily focused on expanding in the Baltic Sea. With its newest route, the ferry operator literally breaks new ground, and closes a gap at the same time. Stena Line’s first ever ferry route to mainland Finland makes up for the now densest route network in Northern Europe, reaching from the Irish Sea to the utmost east of the continent. The opening is also a testament of Stena Line’s approach to act dynamically and consequently, when the customers’ demand is there.

EXPANSION CONTINUES

Over the past year, Stena Line has expanded in the Baltic Sea, increasing both freight and passenger capacity, to cater for increasing demand of sea transportation in the region.

The ferry company has announced that the expansion on the Baltic Sea will continue during 2022, increasing both freight- and passenger capacity. The company has announced that they will deploy their two new 240-meter-long fuel-efficient E-Flexer ferries, on the Nynäshamn-Ventspils next year. Stena Line has also announced plans to increase the capacity on the Karlskrona-Gdynia route with the deployment of the two large and modern ferries Stena Scandica and Stena Baltica.
