Stena orders another LNG-fueled ferry in China

Sweden’s Stena RoRo has ordered another LNG-powered ferry from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Weihai. The RoPax-class E-Flexer vessel will be delivered in the first quarter of 2026 to France’s Corsica Linea and will operate between Marseille and Corsica.

This is Stena RoRo’s thirteenth vessel in the E-Flexer series and the first to be delivered to the Mediterranean region.

Stena RoRo did not reveal the price tag of the new order.

It said that a total of six vessels will now be under construction at the shipyard at the same time.

Prior to this this ship, France’s Brittany Ferries will take delivery of two LNG-powered ships, the 11th and the 12th in these series, in 2024 and 2025.

The newest E-Flexer vessel will be 203 meters long, and will have a capacity for 1000 passengers and 2500 cargo meters of freight.

It will be designed with the classification society notation “battery power” which means that in the future the vessel will also be able to utilize batteries as a means of propulsion.

For Corsica Linea, with this vessel it will further slash its emissions. The new vessel adds to Corsica Linea’s, A Galeotta, its first LNG-powered ferry.

Corsica Linea took delivery of this vessel in December 2022.
