Already from August 15, 2018 Stena Line route from Gdynia to Nynäshamn will be strengthen by the new larger ship. Vikingland, a bigger ro-ro unit, will replace Bore Bay and will add to the freight capacity of the route by as much as 30 percent.
Stena Line operates two services: from Gdynia to Karlskrona and from Gdynia to Nynäshamn. The Karlskrona route already has more than twenty years of history. The freight ferry route from Gdynia to Nynäshamn (harbor near Stockholm) started on October 16, 2017.
The Stena Line connection to Nynäshamn was operated by a roro unit Bore Bay. Because of schedule changes in Irish Sea and North Sea, Bore Bay will be operating another route and Gdynia- Nynäshamn will be serviced by Vikingland.
Vikingland is a roro ship, built in Finland, sailing under British flag. The new vessel offers as much as 2170 lane meters for loads. Thanks to this, the freight capacity of the new Stena Line connection to Nynäshamn is increased by as much as 30%. This will allow to offer a larger cargo capacity to freight customers and thus respond to the growing demand for freight on this route.
At the same time Stena Line is also investing in the Gdynia-Karlskrona route. Already in October the a new ferry will be added to the route – Stena Nordica, which is intended for both freight and passenger transport. Together with 6 departures on the new ferry route to Nynäshamn and 46 to Karlskrona, Stena Line from October offers a record number of 52 departures a week between Gdynia and Sweden, with five ferries.
