Millennium Ferry Experiences Engine Malfunction

June 1, 2015

The Millennium ferry experienced a malfunction to one of its four main engines on Wednesday May 27th, the Department of Marine and Ports said.

“The Department of Marine and Ports can advise the public that the Fast Ferry Millennium experienced a malfunction to one of its four main engines on Wednesday May 27th,” a spokesperson said,

“Due to the loss of one engine, along with the inclement weather which the island experienced at the end of last week, the Millennium was not able to operate as scheduled through to Friday May 29th.

“It is highly likely that services would have been suspended on Thursday and Friday anyway because of the poor weather conditions, even without the mechanical problems.

“A plan is underway to effect repairs as soon as possible and contingencies have been made to replace the vessel on route when the repairs commence if so required.

“The Millennium has resumed service today albeit at a lower service speed which will see an increase in travel times of up to five to ten minutes dependent on passenger load and weather conditions.

“Millennium has provided sterling service these last two plus seasons. She operated 1,681 trips without one mechanical cancellation since inception of service in 2013.”
