Two more multi-fuel E-Flexer RoPax contracts have been signed by Stena RoRo with Chinese yard CMI Jinling (Weihai). The two ships, numbers 14 and 15 in the E-Flexer series, will be delivered for long-term charter to Greece’s Attica Group in 2027. They will be deployed on Attica’s Superfast Adriatic Service.

Stena RoRo has achieved considerable success with the versatile E-Flexer class of RoPax vessels, which can be adapted to meet customers’ requirements, both commercially and technically. The ships’ hulls, propellers and rudders are optimised, and the flexible design enables new carbon-reducing features to be incorporated.

The Attica ships’ engines will be able to burn heavy fuel oil, marine gasoil, or biodiesel and will be ‘ready’ to use methanol. Meanwhile, the classification society notation ‘Battery power’ will mean that the vessels can use batteries as a means of propulsion in the future, either partly or completely, depending on battery development.

Attica Group CEO, Panos Dikaios, noted that the company has steadily upgraded ferry services to the Saronic Islands, contributing to a substantial boost in visitor numbers. “Our agreement with Stena RoRo for the charter of two new state-of-the-art vessels sets new standards for the entire Greek ferry industry,” he said. “It drastically reduces our environmental footprint, redefines the travel experience, and responds dynamically to the challenges of tomorrow.”

Per Westling, Stena RoRo CEO, commented: “The E-Flexer vessels to Attica have been jointly designed and ordered as the most bespoke E-Flexers so far. The design is extremely versatile, and the ships will, with their inherent flexibility of different fuels, battery hybrid operation, and many other fuel-saving features, play an important role in the green transition of the Attica Superfast Adriatic RoPax service.”

The 24-knot vessels will have capacity for 1,500 passengers, 256 cabins, and 3,320 lane-metres for freight.
