As a part of the ongoing development of Stena Line’s Irish Sea route network, the Stena Forecaster has been transferred from Stena RoRo to Stena Line and will enter service on the Belfast – Liverpool route from today - Tuesday, 12 February 2019.  

Stena Forerunner will transfer back to the North Sea and operation on Rotterdam-Killingholm. Stena Line is one of Europe's leading ferry companies with 38 vessels and 20 routes in Northern Europe.

“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," says Paul Grant, Trade Director Irish Sea North.

 He added: "The 3,000 lane metre ship will help to boost capacity ahead of next year’s exciting 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 and as well as service levels.”  

Stena Forecaster will make two departures daily Monday to Friday and will partner the two RoPax vessels Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey on the Belfast-Liverpool route.
