Two RO/RO freight ferries operated by Stena Line of Sweden are each to undergo conversions that will increase their capacities by 30%, not through a midbody insertion stretch, but through the addition of an additional cargo deck.

The vessels are the 196 meter long, 2001-built Stena Foreteller, which currently operates on the Belfast-Liverpool route, and the 195.3 meter long 2003-built Stena Forerunner, which currently operates on the Rotterdam=Harwich route.

The conversions will be carried out in China under a contract signed on behalf of Stena Line by Stena RoRo. As well as the additional cargo deck, the vessels will be given increased thruster capacity and will be prepared for shore power. The conversion for both vessels will be finalised during 2025.
