Stena Line har indgået en 77 årig lang aftale med Peel Ports Group, som dermed giver dem ret til at fortsætte med at anløbe havnen i Heysham indtil 2100. Stena Line indgik en lignende aftale med Peel Ports Group i februar omkring Q12 terminalen i Birkenhead.
“Our business on our Belfast-Heysham route has thrived in recent years and is a vital connection for freight transport across the Irish Sea. With the upcoming introduction of our NewMax hybrid ships, this route represents a unique opportunity for Stena Line to offer our freight customers more sustainable transport between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK and will be a key milestone in our sustainability journey.”
Niclas Martensson, CEO of Stena Line.
“We have been collaborating successfully with Stena Line for many years and it’s fantastic to establish another long-term agreement with the business. This deal reaffirms our promise to continue developing and maintaining services across the Irish sea, while also showcasing our ongoing investment into our Heysham operation. We’re confident the route will continue to prove hugely successful for many decades to come.”
David Huck, Chief Operating Officer at Peel Ports Group.
