'Nord Pas-de-Calais' is a freight ferry owned by Eurotunnel and operated by MyFerryLink.
She was built in 1987 by Chantiers du Nord et de la Mediterranee SA, Dunkirk (Yard No 325) for the SNCF as a multi-purpose passenger and roll-on roll-off ferry for lorries and railway vehicles.
After the introduction of Eurotunnel there was no need for a train ferry, so SNCF were losing money running her.
She was acquired by SNAT and Stena Sealink in 1989 who operated the Nord Pad-de-Calais until 31 December 1995.
From 1 January 1996 SNAT operated as SeaFrance. The Nord Pas-de-Calais was rename SeaFrance Nord Pas-de-Calais.
SeaFrance operated until November 2011.
Eurotunnel won the bid for the 3 former SeaFrance vessels.
They renamed her Nord Pas-de-Calais dropping SeaFrance form her name.
Eurotunnel's new ferry company started running on 20 August 2012 branded under the name of MyFerryLink.
Allthough in August, MyFerryLink ran on two vessels as Nord Pas-de-Calais was sent off for a full refit shortly before MyFerryLink began service. She began operating during November 2012.
