Second large Stena ro-pax ferry arrives for upgrade

Following Stena Hollandica (renamed Stena Germanica) redelivered by Remontowa a few months ago, a sister vessel - Britannica (ex Stena Britannica, TBN Stena Scandinavica) arrived to Remontowa yard on October 13, for upgrade and extension of passenger spaces.
The ferry is expected to be redelivered in December.
The range of upgrade of Britannica (similar to Hollandica / Germanica) at Gdansk Shiprepair Yard "Remontowa" S.A. will be quite extensive. The new part of superstructure (new deck) will be installed, which will extend the passenger spaces with both cabins (100) and public spaces. Existing passenger spaces will be refurbished and rearranged.
Cargo space will be rearranged as well, with new ro-ro and cargo access equipment installed. All ship equipment items and systems, necessary for the new or rearranged cargo and passenger spaces will be installed, extended or rearranged accordingly. The conversion work will ensure that the vessel are best suited to their new trading route.
Upgrading and refurbishing of Stena Hollandica and Stena Britannica in Gdansk constitutes the continuation of good business relations between Stena Line and Remontowa resulting also from Gdansk based yard's wide experience in ferry upgrades and extensive conversions, scheduled repairs and maintenance as well as damage repairs for several top European ferry operators bringing their ships to Remontowa sometimes even from the North Sea, English Channel or Irish Sea. Also Stena Line ferries have not been a rare sight at Remontowa's docks and quays over the several recent years, with such jobs accomplished in Gdansk as extensive upgrade of Stena Baltica or wide ranging repairs of Stena Nautica as well as numerous regular dockings and scheduled maintenance / repairs.
