A first for Stena as three ferries docked together at Rosslare
THREE Stena ferries were in Rosslare Harbour at the same time last week, the first time the ferry company has simultaneously had three vessels in the Europort.
Ian Davies, Route Manager, Irish Sea South, Stena Line, said: 'The Stena Europe, Stena Horizon and Stena Flavia took over three berths of Rosslare Europort as we prepared for the £4.4m refit of our Irish Sea fleet. The Stena Flavia arrived in port on Tuesday, January 12, to provide cover for the Stena Horizon on the Rosslare to Cherbourg route which has now sailed to Harland and Wolff in Belfast for its annual refit.'
Over the next two months, seven Stena Line vessels, will visit Harland & Wolff in Belfast on a carefully sequenced timetable to facilitate a range of specialist works including annual inspections, passenger facility upgrade work as well as ongoing technical enhancements. The Stena Flavia has already began sailing on the Rosslare to Cherbourg route replacing Stena Horizon, until March 6.
The Stena Horizon has been at Harland and Wolff since January 14 and she will cover the Dublin to Holyhead route in place of the Stena Superfast X and Stena Adventurer dockings, until around March 6.
