STENA HIBERNIA is currently scheduled to leave Belfast Dry Dock this afternoon. She is expected to replace STENA PERFORMER on the Belfast to Heysham route tomorrow morning, joining her sister-ship STENA SCOTIA on the route. STENA PERFORMER will then head for dry-docking at Cammell-Laird Birkenhead prior to her return to Seatruck Ferries who will deploy her on their Warrenpoint to Heysham run.

Newcomer STENA FORERUNNER is expected to leave Rotterdam Europoort for Belfast on Friday evening according to sources in Holland. She will replace STENA PRECISION on the Belfast – Birkenhead route from Monday afternoon allowing Precision to also go to dry-dock. Once their dry-dockings have been completed both Precision and Performer will revert to their as-built names of SEATRUCK PERFORMANCE and SEATRUCK PRECISION.
