Stena Line has announced that STENA EMBLA, the last of its three new ferries destined for the Irish Sea, has successfully completed its sea trials in China’s Yellow Sea.
She will arrive home around Christmas, in time to start operating on the Belfast to Birkenhead route in early 2021, alongside sister ship STENA EDDA.
The new vessel replaces the STENA MERSEY, which has successfully operated on the Belfast to Birkenhead route for 10 years. She will then head off to join sister ship STENA LAGAN in Turkey where both ships are being extended, before re-deployment on the Baltic Sea.
