NewMax in Heysham

The vessels have been specially designed for Stena Line’s route between Belfast and Heysham on the Irish Sea and therefore have enhanced maneuverability. Stena RoRo is responsible for the contract and construction of the NewMax vessels and delivery is scheduled for 2025.

“These vessels are a further development of our previous cargo ship concepts where focus on sustainability and future-proofing with multi-fuel combustion engines are prioritized,” says Per Westling, managing director of Stena RoRo.

Both cargo vessels are designed with limited length and shallow draught to suit the special conditions in the narrow port of Heysham.
