STENA RORO REFURBISHES
A 37-YEAR-OLD PASSENGER FERRY
The Stena Europe is a passenger ferry operated by Stena Line, servicing the Irish Sea route between Fishguard and Rosslare. The 37-year-old ship has careful maintenance to thank for its good condition. In order to keep the ship running for another number of years, it has undergone a thorough renovation in recent months.
Stena RoRo has received the assignment to modernise and replace some key parts and functions – including replacing the lifeboats, sewage pipes and other steel parts.
“After the refurbishment, the ship will be able to operate for another 15 years or so. By doing this, we are taking responsibility for maintaining safety and caring for the environment. The refurbishment is also motivated by the focus on and recent efforts surrounding sustainability,” says Per Westling, CEO Stena RoRo.
“With a long background as chief engineer, I have skills and experience to care for a ship from top to bottom. It will be exciting to update the Stena Europe to a new version with modern equipment,” says Johan Kippel, Stena RoRo.
