Europe is expected back in service tomorrow evening, returning in place of the Nordica on the 18.10 sailing to Fishguard, assuming no further hiccups !

Nice video on this article here of it leaving Tuzla drydock.

Potential triple Stena view in Rosslare this afternoon if the Europe puts the foot down, Horizon and Nordica should be both in port between 4 & 5 pm

Reported on The Facebook this evening that Europe is expected back in service during the next week, from that we can assume the mechanical gremlins that caused it to go to Liverpool are repaired, all relevant tests / certificates for MCA have been done to their satisfaction and that new MES has been tested and crew familiarization done

Mentioned is a return on Tuesday/ Wednesday, I would expect given that it has been in a Liverpool all week, all stores for crew and customers could have been loaded and it could be ready to go sooner than this !

Stena Lagan and Mersey to be lengthened

https://www.shippax.com/en/news/sedef-shipbuilding-to-lengthen-stena-lagan-and-stena-mersey.aspx
Non-paywalled detail here.

Thanks for the link, great info, going to have to be a new bow arrangement to get a bow door fitted, possibly similar to design on link below (scroll to image at bottom)

Going to be interesting where the Lagan and Mersey end up.

Thanks for getting the images, just looks so strange to see the Connemara so far upriver, ( I know thatís a deep water berth) but strange setting to see a modern ferry berthed at.

Apparently needs work on one of the engines/ propulsion system, Reports on Facebook indicate that there are issues when they go in reverse, would assume parts are fabricated and in Liverpool ready to be fitted.

Nothing wrong with it going forwards achieving over 21 knts on way to Liverpool, obviously MCA certifying to be finished and the MES to be tested, crew training and finally stores to be put onboard before it returns to service.

Found the ferry named in article, currently in service between China and Korea as Rizhao Orient.

As we have the Kerry, current AF Michela and former Stena Egeria, Hoa Sen which sailed from Korea coming soon for Brittany Ferries, could this report be based on incorrect information ?
