Stena Line looks at alternatives to Varberg

Stena Line looks at alternatives to Varberg

04-05-2017 12:00:00


Stena Line has now begun the process of seeking alternatives to Varberg harbor for the traffic to Grenaa. The reason is that the municipality no longer projects a ferry port in the new future port. Stena Line is therefore required to leave the current berth location in 2019.

"We have been in Varberg for many years and of course we think it is sad to start a process to look for an alternative port," says Tony Michaelsen, Director of Stena Line Sweden and Denmark.

The background for Stena Line beginning to investigate an alternative is that Varberg wishes to keep the timetable for urban development in Västerport. The municipality of Varberg therefore terminates the Stena Line’s agreement, which has caused them to move from the current location by the third quarter of 2019.

Stena Line's traffic between Sweden and Denmark has strategic importance. Every year, about 170,000 passengers, 45,000 cars and 45,000 trucks are transported. For passengers, the route is primarily known as the Legoland Line, and for many companies it is an important part of the logistics chain.

The shipping company considers Halland Hamnar about a possible move to Halmstad. Stena Line has now signed a letter of intent with Halland Hamnar for continued dialogue with Halmstad as a possible alternative.

"We have signed this letter of intent with Halland Hamnar in order to continue dialogue in more concrete terms. We will now continue the dialogue, while considering other possibilities," says Tony Michaelsen.
