The second vessel under construction at the Avic Weihai Shipyard has been floated out.
She will be named STENA EDDA, after an old Norse term that refers to a central medieval collection of poems and divine mythology.
STENA EDDA is scheduled to enter service on the Belfast-Liverpool route in spring 2020.
This is the second of three new E-Flexer vessels bound for the Irish Sea during 2020 and 2021.
In addition to the three Irish Sea vessels, Stena Line has also ordered a further two E-Flexer ro-pax vessels with a larger design (3,600 lane metre), to be deployed within Stena Line’s network in 2022.
