Stena Line has moved its Nynäshamn ferry terminal to the recently built Stockholm Norvik port in Sweden, as part of its expansion plans in the Baltic Sea.

The terminal was officially opened on November 9, 2020 with the arrival of the vessel Stena Flavia.

Stena Line recently announced plans to boost freight and passenger capacity on its Nynäshamn (Sweden) to Ventspils (Latvia) route – with the deployment of two large, modern passenger ro-ro vessels during 2021. The ferry company said the move to Stockholm Norvik port strengthens this position further.

Johan Edelman, trade director Baltic Sea north at Stena Line said that the first of the two vessels is expected to start operating in January 2021 – adding 30 percent of freight capacity to the route.

The 12 ha (120,000 sq m) ferry terminal features 525 m of quay length, 142 trailer parking lots and cross docking facilities.

Johan Wallén, marketing and sales manager at Ports of Stockholm said: “With the strategic location of Stockholm Norvik port, state-of-the-art infrastructure and great opportunities for storage and load handling, we have created completely new prerequisites for our customers.”
