Seatruck Ferries add tonnage

Recommended Posts

SEATRUCK Ferries is to charter an additional ferry for its Heysham - Warrenpoint service in the summer of 2005. The 1998-built Estonian-flag Lembitu, to be renamed Challenge, will join the Seatruck fleet on a two-year charter, allowing an additional 25,000 units per year to take advantage of the specialist freight route.

Seatruck Ferries is part of Bahamas-based shipping consortium Clipper Group which owns operates or manages 235 vessels worldwide.

With a capacity of 65 units and a service speed of 16.5 knots, the Challenge has been operating on the Irish Sea with rival operator Norse Merchants. It will join the Moondance and Riverdance to increase schedule frequency from 2 to 3 sailings per day in each direction. The additional sailings will be timed to ideally fit the needs of the Irish Sea transport industry. Seatruck expect volumes to increase to 85,000 units per year.

General Manager Alistair Eagles says: "We have been seeking a third vessel for some time in line with demand for additional capacity on the route. The "Challenge" will be a fantastic boost for our loyal customers, who will now be able to fully realise the benefits of the Warrenpoint service. We also have unprecedented interest levels from new clients and are predicting a rapid build-up of traffic on the extra sailings.”
