Photo Feature: In strange waters – Stena Line Irish Sea refits 2016
By: Steven Tarbox
Stena Flavia is covering the Stena Irish Sea refit period this year.
Stena’s Baltic Sea regular Stena Flavia arrived in Rosslare last week after a voyage directly from the Baltic. As reported earlier by NIFS, Stena Flavia is the refit relief vessel for Stena’s Irish Sea refit/dry-docking programme this year. She will spend her refit cover period deputising for Stena Horizon on the Rosslare to Cherbourg route, allowing Stena Horizon to cover for Stena Superfast X and Stena Adventurer. Stena Superfast X will be providing the refit cover for North Channel regulars Stena Superfast VII and VIII. All the ferries (with the exception of Stena Europe) will visit Belfast’s Harland and Wolff yard following the award of a £4m contract to the firm. This page will be updated as new photographs are uploaded.
