Stena Line increases capacity on its Dublin-Holyhead service

Stena Line has announced that it will be adding extra tonnage to expand its Dublin to Holyhead service in early 2015. Following months of speculation the 
company has confirmed that it will be replacing the Stena Nordica with a larger ropax vessel, Stena Superfast X.

Stena Superfast X is a sister ship of the award winning Stena Superfast VII and VIII ships which the company currently operates on the Irish Sea. It has 
capacity for up to 1,200 passengers and provides almost 2 km of lane space to accommodate a mix of car and freight traffic.

Ian Davies, Stena Line’s Route Manager (Irish Sea South) said:

“Providing additional capacity and facilities to expand our Dublin- Holyhead route is an important strategic development for Stena Line on the Irish Sea at 
this time. Our freight and travel customers will now be able to benefit from an enhanced service on this key trade and tourism gateway at a time when 
commercial and leisure traffic between Ireland and Britain are showing really encouraging signs of future growth.

“By introducing a much larger ship onto the route, we are demonstrating our confidence and commitment to a trade and tourism gateway which will play a key 
part in helping to drive forward the economies on both sides of the Irish Sea.

"In the last 5 years alone Stena Line has invested over £250m across its Irish Sea operations and we are confident that the improving economic climate in 
Ireland and Britain will show that this significant resource commitment has been extremely well timed.

"As the major tourism gateway into Ireland it is important that Dublin benefits from the best possible transport links. We are looking forward to our 
enhanced passenger service into Dublin in 2015 playing its part in helping to drive up visitor numbers next year and in the years ahead.”

Superfast X is currently being modified and fully refitted before taking up her position on the Dublin-Holyhead service in early 2015. The vessel will have 
a range of facilities including dedicated passenger and freight driver lounges, Barista Coffee House, Met Bar and Grill, a retail shopping outlet and other 
areas for passengers to relax and enjoy their crossing including Stena Line’s award winning signature premium lounge, Stena PluS.
