STENA PRECISION normally operates the Belfast to Liverpool (Birkenhead) route as a freight-only third ship alongside the passenger and freight carrying RoPax sisters STENA LAGAN and STENA MERSEY.  From time to time she also operates on the Belfast – Heysham freight service in place of one of the regular vessels, STENA PERFORMER (a sister to STENA PRECISION) and STENA HIBERNIA.  STENA PERFORMER and STENA PRECISION are chartered to Stena Line from Seatruck Ferries until the end of August 2018, and are sister vessels of Seatruck’s SEATRUCK PROGRESS and SEATRUCK POWER.  After concluding their charters to Stena Line, STENA PERFORMER and STENA PRECISION will enter service for Seatruck between Warrenpoint and Heysham.  For more information on STENA PRECISION / SEATRUCK PRECISION please see her profile here.
