Epsilon has been taken out of service on the Holyhead - Dublin route since her arrival over the Christmas / New year once one of the other vessels in the fleet Oscar this year arrives onto the route. She normally comes back onto the route during dry docking of Ulysses.
No she is not down to return to the route at all next year.
I think Stena Forwarder was on the run from 2001 – 2003. How many ops staff would remember how to load a vessel they last had on the run 13 years ago.Err, no. Stena did run Stena Forwarder back in the day after all!Running Horizon to Holyhead is like Itish Ferries running Epsilon. It's proven to work. In order to refit all vessels they are going to have to do more than one change anyway surely?
Stena tug drivers load/unload for Irish Ferries in Holyhead port so they are use to this type stern only loading vessel already. So Irish Ferries did all the ground work for Stena on the Holyhead route.

Any ideas if and when the epsilon will be in dry dock and where.
