Stena Feronia en route

Just a quick update to say that Stena Feronia has now left Gibraltar where she had been at anchor and is now bound for Belfast where she will cover for Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey while they go for dry-docking.  She is expected to arrive in Belfast at around 06:00 on this coming Saturday 15th November.  Stena Nordica is also due to arrive in Belfast at around the same time for a brief dry-docking at Harland and Wolff.   Picture: Stena Feronia.  Copyright Scott Mackey.
