Stena will convert one of its ferries at Nauta Shiprepair Yard. After a charter with DFDS Stena’s ferry m/f “Dieppe Seaways” has just entered Nauta Shiprepair Yard to be converted into m/f “Stena Superfast X” to enable her crossing between Holyhead (UK) and Dublin (IE).
The vessel with her main characteristics:
shall undergo conversion works which among others include: modification and refurbishment of the interior in the public open spaces, refurbishment of the cabins to Stena standard, conversion of the cargo access equipment in the bow and stern e.g installation of l bow- and stern ramps and modification the bow doors to its origin, installation of a watertight door on dk2 and WT bulkhead in pipe tunnel to conform with UK stability regulations , renewal of Main Propulsion Propeller Blades and application of a new livery.
It is worth adding that after successful dry dockings of Stena’s ferries such as m/f “Stena Forecaster” , m/f “Stena Flavia” and m/f “Stena Alegra” it is the first refurbishment contract for Stena in Nauta’s 88 years’ long history.
