Stena Estrid Successfully Completes Sea Trials

STENA ESTRID, the first of Stena Line’s three new ferries destined for the Irish Sea, has successfully completed her sea trials in China’s Yellow Sea.

She is now on schedule to start operating on the Dublin to Holyhead route in early 2020.

STENA ESTRID is the first of five new Stena Line next generation RoPax vessels that are being constructed at the AVIC Weihai Shipyard in China, three of which will be introduced on the company’s Irish Sea routes from Dublin to Holyhead and Belfast to Liverpool.

Sister ship STENA EDDA is due to commence operations from Belfast to Liverpool in spring 2020, with the third vessel STENA EMBLA expected to be introduced on the same route in early 2021.
