M/S Freja


General history and facts:

”M/S Freja” is a car and passenger ferry built in 1973 by “AB Åsi-verken”, Åmål, Sweden and delivered to “Statens Vägverk”, Stockholm on 13th of June 1973 under the name “Färja 61/294”. Soon after that it was assigned to the Adelsö–Munsö line. In 1978 the ferry was transferred to the route Östanå–Ljusterö and five years latter was still used there, but as a back-up vessel. In 1988 the ferry changed its name to “Freja”. In 1992 it was extended in length and breadth with 10.00/0.71 m respectively to its modern dimensions. In 1993 it served the Öregrund–Gräsö line, in 1994 the Östanå–Ljusterö line, in 1995 Slagsta–Jungfrusund line. In 2001 the main engines were exchanged to Mitsubishi S6R2 MPTK, 1,306 hp (960 kW). In 2010 there was a modernisation in the road administration system and a new entity of “Trafikverket” was created. From 2010 “Trafikverket Färjerederiet” manages and runs “Freja”. In 2011 it was used as a ferry on the route Fårösund–Broa, Gotland. In the latest years it is used at various routes in the Stockholm's archipelago, very often as a back-up vessel.
