At the end of February, Western Shiprepair, one of BLRT Repair Yards, members of BLRT Grupp, completed maintenance and repair works of Stena Flavia, a Ro-Ro passenger ship which belongs to the Swedish shipping company Stena Line. This is the first vessel owned by Stena Line accepted by the yard in a long time.

The yard’s planned contractual specification included everything from overhauling both steering gears, repairs and maintenance both tail shafts, piping, valves and heat exchangers to installation of hull structure reinforcements, steel renewal and modification works.

As a result, we`ve got an efficient and professionally managed project”.
