Birkenhead-Belfast Port Infrastructure(Read 360 times)
Birkenhead-Belfast Port Infrastructure on: January 12, 2020, 04:43:22 PM
The second of Stena's new vessels, the Stena Edda is reportedly due to arrive in the spring. I am wondering if anybody knows if any works are being conducted at Belfast and Birkenhead, ready for her reception.

I assume Stena Edda will be capable of double deck loading and presumably they will be making modification at the ports for her to be able to do so, which, especially at Birkenhead, could be quite complex and I would have expected such works are now in progress.

Alternatively, it may have been decided that, due to her time spent in port - usually around 4 hours, there is sufficient time for her to unload and reload using single deck only, especially given that unlike the current vessels, she will be a through loading ship (again an assumption).

Does anybody know of such works and/or the loading method she will be likely to undertake?
