Stena Line Launches Its Fourth E-Flexer


Stena Line’s first new extended E-Flexer ferry has been launched at the CMI Jinling Weihai Shipyard in China, says an article published in Offshore Energy.

About the vessel

The Ro-Pax vessel, whose name is yet to be revealed, took to the water for the first time on 24 May. The vessel was ordered in 2018 and the delivery is expected in 2022.

The ferry is the fourth out of five next-generation E-Flexer vessels that are designed and built-in collaboration with the sister company Stena RoRo at the CMI Jinling Weihai Shipyard.

The name of the new vessel and the locations where it will operate will be announced later this year.

The ferry company said that all five vessels will be gas-ready upon delivery, to allow conversion to methanol or LNG fuel.

Mission To Reduce CO2 by 2030

The Swedish ferry owner and operator plan to reduce total CO2 emissions by as much as 30% until 2030 as part of its decarbonization strategy. The introduction of more efficient vessels and the exploration of new fuels are key steps in that direction.
