Stena RoRo returns to large-scale investments in ships
After taking a break, Stena RoRo will once again embark on large-scale investments in ships. Several ships could join the fleet this year, CEO Per Westling tells ShippingWatch. Stronger offshore markets have created a degree of security in the system.
Rising oil prices and major profits at energy companies come at an opportune time for suppliers. Analysts expect the otherwise strained offshore carriers to begin ordering more ships in 2023, with Prosafe’s CEO reporting ”optimism in our field.”
Harald Solberg, CEO of the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association, fears that the green energy transition will move too slowly if policymakers don’t take further action soon, he tells ShippingWatch. Two initiatives in particular are necessary, he says.
