Bright outlook for Stena as Forecaster goes to Belfast – Liverpool

[ February 11, 2019   //   ]

Stena Line has transferred the Stena Forecaster from its Stena RoRo chartering arm and will enter service on the Belfast – Liverpool route from 12 February 2019. The Stena Forerunner will transfer back to the Rotterdam-Killingholme route.
Stena Forecaster will make two departures daily Monday to Friday, offering 3,000 lane metres, and will partner the two ro pax vessels Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey on the Belfast-Liverpool route.
Trade Director Irish Sea North, Paul Grant, said: “This is another important step in our expansion programme for our ‘diagonal corridor’ services to and from Belfast. Stena Forecaster will help us continue to deliver a reliable and high-quality service to our freight customers.”
He added that the vessel would also help to boost capacity ahead of next year’s introduction of the first of two new, larger E-Flexer ships currently under construction in China.
