Second large E-Flexer to boost Stena’s capacity on Sweden-Poland route

The second of two large E-Flexer RoPax vessels, Stena Ebba, is set to join sister vessel, Stena Estelle, in December on the route between Karlskrona, Sweden, and Gdynia in Poland. The first ship, Stena Estelle, will be deployed on the Baltic Sea service from August.

The largest E-Flexer vessels so far, the 240m-long RoPax units are 36m longer than the three existing E-Flexers operated by the company. The ships will be able to take 15% more cargo and accommodate 30% more passengers. They will have capacity for 3,600 lane-metres of vehicles and rolling cargo, space for 1,200 passengers, and 50% more cabins.

Stena Line CEO, Niclas Mårtensson, commented: “The southern Baltic Sea is a key region for Stena Line and our route Karlskrona-Gdynia is a backbone for our ambition to grow and expand further. Stena Ebba, together with the twin vessel Stena Estelle, will set new standards of flexibility, service orientation, and customer satisfaction. They are the largest vessels in our successful E-Flexer fleet, and we are proud and excited to soon having Stena Ebba and Stena Estelle connecting some of the most dynamic markets in Europe.”
