From August 13, Stena Line will be adding a port-call in Karlskrona (Sweden) on the existing ferry route between Liepaja (Letland) and Travemünde (Germany).

“We see an increasing demand for sea transportation in the Baltic region. This is an expansive region where Stena Line already has a strong presence and we are pleased to expand our customer offering. Our intention is to increase the frequency and capacity even further going forward.”, says Erik Thulin, Trade Director Baltic Sea North.

The route between Liepaja and Travemünde is operated by the two Danish-flagged RoPax vessels STENA GOTHICA and URD, both with a freight capacity of 1,600 lane meters. The new weekly port-call in Karlskrona will initially be in the direction Liepaja-Travemünde on Thursday evenings.

Two months ago, Flow Ship Design already came up with a rendering of a hybrid double-ended ferry (diesel-electric), designed to carry 600 passengers and 170 cars.

This ferry is also part of the METRO project, for the Croatian domestic route Brestova-Porozina.
