Stena cuts back on HSS sailings

Date: 01 Jun 2006 00:00 Source: Lloyds List

Stena Line has cutback on the sailings of the HSS Discovery on the Harwich, UK-Hook of Holland, Netherlands route and the HSS Explorer which links Holyhead, UK with Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.

On the North Sea route a normal schedule of two round trips a day will be maintained on Friday-Sunday but on Monday and Thursday there will three crossings a day and two each on Tuesday and Wednesday between October and early December.

“This is the first action coming out of the fleet review in response to the continuing high oil prices,” a Stena Line spokesman told Fairplay. “It is likely these will stay.”

He indicated that other measures were being taken for the Belfast HSS service, such as bunkering changes that have reduced fuel consumption by around 5% and leaving early and travelling at slower speed but still arriving on time. He added that “other changes will be coming in the future such as the two new ships for the Killinghome service, the first of which should be in service in July.”
