Stena RoRo


Stena RoRo is a wholly integrated division of Stena AB. Stena RoRo is one of the leading innovators of the roll on/roll off cargo and passenger concepts and their products include vessels such as RoRos and RoPaxes.​ ​The company charters out a number of vessels to first-class operators all over the world and their clients are found both within and outside of the Stena Sphere. The company is also highly skilled and experienced in designing and converting vessels.  A major milestone in the Stena RoRo story came in 1977 when 11 new RoRo vessels were built at the Hyundai Shipyard in South Korea. Known as the ‘Searunner Class’ this order was an important and crucial starting-point for the future engagement in successful RoRo operations for many well known ferry operators.
