SCA Transforest m/v Östrand on a drydock (Birds Eye)
Overall length of 170 m, a beam of 23.5 m, a speed of 16 knots and a cargo capacity of 8,200 tons. The vessels are classified Class 1A" and feature a double loading deck design.

The cargo is carried on cassettes, and the vessels are the first in the world to be specially designed for cassette handling. In the centre of the vessels on each deck, there is a longitudinal bulkhead separating the decks into two 10.5 m wide areas, each with room for four cassettes athwartships. This system minimises the risk of load movement and cargo damage during transport.

The vessels are highly computerised and designed for operation by a nine-men crew.
