Stena Transfer

Stena Transfer

IMO: 7528570
Flag: Latvia
Current position: China

In 2010 the Swedish-based company Stena said it would send two of its ferries to Chinese shipbreaking yards, in violation of the European Waste Shipment Regulation. The NGO Shipbreaking Platform sent a letter to the owner of Stena, calling on the company not to send its ships for breaking in developing countries. While the Stena Partner was sold in December 2010 to a UK-based company for further use (and renamed Sea Partner), the Sea Transfer was sold to Chinese shipbreakers.
