Stena RoRo

Stena RoRo is a wholly owned division of Stena AB and is one of the leading innovators in the design and development of roll on/roll off cargo and passenger concepts for both the Stena Group and external clients. In addition to these activities the company is also a ship owner and is active in the business of ship chartering with a number of RoRo and RoPax vessels currently on charter to operators all over the world.

A major milestone in the Stena RoRo story came in 1977 when eleven new RoRo vessels were built at the Hyundai Shipyard at Ulsan in South Korea. Known as the ‘Searunner Class’ this order was seen as an important and crucial moment for the ferry industry and was the starting-point for the future engagement in successful RoRo operations for many of today’s biggest and well known ferry operators.

The company hopes to repeat this success with the construction of nine new vessels at the AVIC Weihai shipyard in China. Known as the Stena E-Flexer Class, they have been designed from the outset to not only be environmentally friendly and efficient but also flexible (hence the name E-Flexer). The vessels are designed to be very adaptable and will be used by Stena Line, Brittany Ferries (BAI) and DFDS.

Stena Line are expected to operate five vessels of the class, Brittany Ferries (BAI) three (two of which will be powered by LNG), and a single vessel will go to DFDS for operations between Dover and Calais. The vessels destined for Brittany Ferries and DFDS will be long-term chartered from Stena RoRo with purchase options.
