Stena Line to add Stena Livia to Baltic Sea fleet

Swedish shipping company Stena Line has announced the addition of 186m-long Visentini RoPax vessel Stena Livia to its Baltic Sea fleet.

Swedish shipping company Stena Line has announced the addition of 186m-long Visentini RoPax vessel Stena Livia to its Baltic Sea fleet.

The new vessel will initially join the Stena Flavia vessel on the Ninashamna-Ventspils route in mid-April, replacing the chartered Scottish Viking vessel.

Both vessels will replace the existing tonnage on the Traveminde-Liepaja route later in the year. This will increase the freight capacity of the route by 40% while substantially shortening transit time.

Stena Line acquired the Nynäshamn-Ventspils and Travemünde-Liepaja ferry routes in 2012.

This year the shipping company is expanding its operations in the Baltic Sea with the addition of new RoPax vessels to ferry routes from Latvia to Sweden and Germany.

Baltic Sea North trade director Johan Edelman said: “We have seen an increase in demand from our customers across the Baltic Sea region. We are now strengthening our position and customer offer further with new modern vessels, more capacity and an attractive onboard experience on both our routes to and from Latvia during 2021.”

The 25.6m wide Stena Livia was built in 2008 at the Italian shipyard Cantieri Navale Visentini. It can accommodate 750 passengers and 200 cars.

Previously, it sailed under the names of Étretat and Norman Voyager.

Stena Line also announced the plan for RoPax vessels Stena Scandica and Stena Baltica to run on the Ninashamna-Ventspils route later this year, which will increase the freight capacity by 30%.
