Type RoPax Owner Stena RoRo Builder Hyundai Heavy Industries

Built at Hyundai Heavy Industries, the 3,500-lane m Stena Britannica was scheduled for delivery to Stena RoRo in Sweden on November 30, 2002. Measuring 692 x 96 x 51 ft. (210.8 x 29.3 x 15.6 m), and a design draft of 21 ft. (6.3 m), the vessel is powered by four MAN B&W 9L40/54 engines, each developing 6,480 kW at 500 rpm driving a pair of Rolls-Royce CP propellers through two Renk twin-input/single-output gearboxes. These gearboxes reduce engine speed to 150 rpm enabling the vessel to move at a service speed of 22 knots. The vessel, which will operate between the U.K. and Holland and Ireland, was designed to comply with the new Stockholm Agreement Rules and IMO A 265 for the damage stability. Four fixed decks (1, 3, 5 and 7) with one hoistable car deck on starboard side of deck five are provided for vehicles offering 3,500 lane m. Vehicles will be loaded and unloaded through a wide stern and bow ramp/door installed on deck three. Two alternators, each developing 2,400 kW take power from the gearboxes and four Hyundai-built MAN B&W 8L23/30H diesel-driven sets, each developing 1,200 kW are provided to the electrical system. Twin flap rudder is adopted, and two 2,200 kW bowthrusters are fitted for powerful maneuverability.
