Nordana Bolsters Ro-Ro Service in the Mediterranean
Nordana, a multipurpose RoRo and project cargo shipping company, is adding a new Mediterranean service that is scheduled to commence operation mid June.
The service is expected to further enhance the route network already in place with existing services. The Nordana Med Service will provide new connections to Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Black Sea ports, while also improving frequency on some of the major ports already serviced in Egypt, Lebanon, and Turkey.
Initially the service will have a 30-day frequency with timing aligned to the Mediterranean-Americas service schedule, so that frequency on main ports will be 15 days.
The service will be operated by the Nordana vessel MV Stjerneborg that was previously engaged in the Mediterranean – Americas service. The Stjerneborg has 2 x 36 tons cranes, 120 tons quarter ramp and a total of 2200 LM capacity.
