After 35 days at sea, the Stena Polaris has arrived at the port of Yousu in South Korea. She has sailed via the icy and harsh North-East Passage along Russia’s northern coast. After arriving at her final destination, the ship was celebrated with representatives of the South Korean government, the corporate management of both Hyundai and the Stena Group and the port authorities attending.
The Stena Polaris began her voyage on 17 September in the port of Ust Luga in the Gulf of Finland with a cargo of 44,000 tons of naphtha. The voyage is a joint project between Stena Bulk and South Korean Hyundai Glovis, the shipping arm of the Hyundai Group.
The whole voyage has been reported in the form of Patrik Svahn’s blogs and photos from the ship. Patrik Svahn normally works in Stena Bulk’s office in Gothenburg but was “our” man on board.
