#StenaRefits - Almost £5m is to be spent by Stena Line in refitting its Irish Sea ferries fleet at Harland & Wolff, reveals The Belfast Telegraph.

Over the next two months, seven Stena Line vessels (likewise of refits in 2015) will visit the shipyard on a carefully sequenced timetable to facilitate a range of specialist works.

These include annual inspections, passenger facility upgrade work as well as ongoing technical enhancements and this work will also carried out by Harland & Wolff. 

Paul Grant, Stena route manager, said the "refits are very important to ensure the smooth and safe running of our expanding fleet of ships. The decision to place the majority of our refit contract work with Harland & Wolff allows us to play our part in helping to support local business".
