Stena Forerunner left drydock in Rotterdam today fully rebranded as Stena Line Freight vessel with blue hull ready to take up service on U.K. Holland route.

Will post image links when available.

The Stena Danica currently in drydock in Landskrona is getting a conservatory style glass roofed bar added to the top deck at the stern, with room for 300 it will be an interesting addition to the Danicas on board offering, it is also likely to get its version of the green wave branding.

The Stena Scandinavica currently in Rementowa has yet to enter drydock it's getting scrubbers fitted, it will be interesting to see how they integrate into the existing funnels.

Stena Britannica is only just leaving Harwich, with Stena Hollandica inbound, according to Marine Traffic.

Does anybody know the reason please?  Britannica was drydocked last November.

Thanks.

I will answer my own question!

There was a fire on one of the lorries as the ship was docking this morning.

Wow, thankfully fire was contained and damage limited, Britannica going to shipyard for inspection and clean up before returning to service, going to cause chaos for a few days to have that capacity lost, Hollandica sailings will be very busy.

Might have to take a vessel on short term charter to help move freight.

Britannica back at Hoek this evening, looks like it's back in service, no major damage done.
