Stena Line, ferry company, announced 950 planned job redundancies in Sweden, a measure taken due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has impacted the company’s passenger operations.
In fact, Captain Matt Lynch was interviewed on BBC News talking about Stena Estrid’s maiden voyage during storm Brendan.
The pilot project of the Swedish ferry company, Stena Line, using artificial intelligence (AI) technology in order to predict the most fuel-efficient way to operate a vessel is saving fuel on the company’s ships. In particular, the software, which is named Stena Fuel Pilot, is expected to be installed during autumn, on five more Stena Line vessels. Moreover, the company states that its ambition during 2020, is to promote the technology across its 37 vessels operating in Europe.
Swedish ferry operator Stena Line pleaded guilty to breaching Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) for failing to adequately assess risks in connection to a serious employee injury at the company’s port terminal in Birkenhead, Wirral, UK, in September 2017.
Company managers and administrators are ignoring cyber threats just like the Captain of Titanic ignored warnings from other ships about the iceberg, said Magnus Carling, the Chief information security officer (CISO) of Swedish operator Stena AB.
Peel Ports and Swedish ship operator Stena Line are planning a major modernisation project in the Port of Liverpool, in North West England, expected to help grow the region’s import and export capabilities significantly. The £17 million port modernization project will take place at Twelve Quays terminal in Birkenhead.
Between the 15th of June 2018 and the 15th of April 2019, Stena Edda went from blueprint to a floating vessel. This video depicts the full transformation in just three minutes. 302 blocks with a total weight of more than 9,350 tonnes of steel were recorded during the process.
Swedish ferry operator Stena Line improved its gender diversity in the past year, with a reported increase of female leaders from 16 % to 19 %, the company said in its annual sustainability review released this week. Gender equality and inclusion was introduced as a new focus area in 2018.
The video, issued by Stena Line, shows how the Captain and crew onboard the cruise ferry ‘Stena Scandinavica’ are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to reduce the fuel consumption on the Gothenburg – Kiel route, under a pilot study initiated back in September 2018.
Swedish Stena Line informed that it will not continue with its first dual-fuel retrofit in spite of the fact that it received funding from the German government. The original project was to convert the ro-pax ferry Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for LNG. The company informed that it will not carry out the project due to ‘budget, technical challenges and both operational and financial risk’.
