Belfast welcomes Stena Edda

[ February 27, 2020   //   ]

Stena Line’s latest ferry, Stena Edda sailed into Belfast Harbour on 26 February ahead of final trials before going into service on the Liverpool route in the coming weeks.

Welcomed by a flotilla of boats, she took part in successful berthing trials at Belfast Harbour’s VT2 Terminal. A new access ramp has been specially built to accommodate the ferry, which offers 40% more deck capacity and 30% higher fuel efficiency than current vessels on the route, including 3,100 lane metres of freight.
