MS Finneco I, one of the series of the three new hybrid ro-ro ships, was named by Mrs Berit Hägerstrand-Åvall, Vice President Sea Services at Stora Enso. She broke the traditional bottle of champagne against the ship’s bow, wishing the ship and its crew safe passages and good fortune. The ceremony took place in Vuosaari Harbour on 13 September 2022.
