AS PART of the ongoing development of Stena Line’s Irish Sea route network, the Stena Forecaster is transferred from Stena RoRo to Stena Line and has entered service on the Belfast-Liverpool route.
‘This is another important step in our expansion programme for our ‘diagonal corridor’ services to and from Belfast,’ says Paul Grant, trade director Irish Sea North. ‘Stena Forecaster will help us continue to deliver a reliable service to our freight customers.
‘The 3,000 lane metre ship will help to boost capacity ahead of next year’s introduction of the first of two new, larger E-Flexer ships which are currently under construction in China. The new ships will significantly raise both freight and travel capacity as well as service levels.’
