Port move ahead of the introduction of rebuilt ‘Stena Lagan’ and ‘Stena Mersey’ service.
Stena Line successfully switched its Swedish port for its Ventspils service from Nynäshamn to Stockholm Norvik earlier today. With the arrival of STENA FLAVIA at 7am (local time), the Ro-Ro port also opened its gates for the first time.
STENA LAGAN is currently undergoing her rebuild in Turkey. Sister-ship STENA MERSEY is expected to follow once released from the Belfast – Liverpool route by STENA EMBLA.
At present, the Ventspils route is served by STENA FLAVIA and SCOTTISH VIKING. While the former is owned by Stena, the latter is chartered from Visemar di Navigazione.
“Moving to Stockholm Norvik Port is an important part of our expansion in the Baltic Sea, and provides us with good prerequisites to continue to grow, together with our customers. Already at the beginning of 2021 we will welcome the first of two new, modern vessels that will increase our freight-carrying capacity on the route by 30 percent”Johan Edelman, Trade Director Baltic Sea North at Stena Line
