Stena Line to deploy E-Flexer ferries on Karlskrona-Gdynia route

Stena Line

Each of the E-Flexer vessels is 240 metres long and will have capacity for 1,200 passengers

Stena Line will launch two of its new E-Flexer ferries on the route between Karlskrona, Sweden, and Gdynia, Poland, in 2022. 

The first vessel will begin operating from July, while the second will follow in November. Both ferries were originally planned to be deployed on the route between Nynäshamn, Sweden, and Ventspils, Latvia, but have been moved to the Karlskrona-Gdynia route due to an increase in freight demand in the South Baltic Sea region.  

Each of the E-Flexer vessels is 240 metres long and will have a capacity of 1,200 passengers and 3,600 lane metres. They are designed for conversion to both battery hybrid operation and LNG or methanol fuel once the necessary bunkering infrastructure has been constructed. 

“Flexibility and growing with our customers are key for Stena Line, and with the E-Flexers that we are now deploying on the Karlskrona-Gdynia route we are striving to offer a fleet that is as flexible as possible,” said Niclas Mårtensson, CEO of Stena Line. 

The recently lengthened and refurbished Stena Scandia and Stena Baltica will continue to serve on the route between Nynäshamn and Ventspils. Stena Line has also opened a completely new route between Nynäshamn and Hanko in Finland on 1 February 2022, operated by ro-pax ferry Urd. A second vessel, Stena Gothica, will be added to the route at the end of May.
