Stena takes delivery of E-Flexer vessel
Swedish company Stena RoRo has taken delivery of an E-Flexer class LNG-fuelled vessel from Chinese shipyard CMI Jinling, it said on December 1.
The Salamanca, the second of five ships in the E-Flexer class ordered by Stena for Brittany Ferries was delivered on November 30. The vessel is the sixth E-Flexer of twelve ordered from the CMI Jinling. The Salamanca will be chartered by Brittany Ferries on a long-term basis and has been specially adapted to the needs of the French ferry company, Stena said.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
The Salamanca has been built with LNG dual-fuel engines and is the first ship in the E-Flexer series with gas engines. Stena RoRo has an agreement with Brittany Ferries for long-term charters of three more vessels in the Stena E-Flexer series. All will be powered by LNG and will be delivered in 2023-2025.
