Liberation fixed but passengers were still disrupted
CONDOR Liberation has been fixed, but passengers today still faced disruption.
For more than a week the vessel has been operating on reduced power while a problem with the vessel's fuel pump was addressed.
Today, a company spokesperson said: 'The recent delays to Condor Liberation’s schedules have been extremely frustrating for us and we regret the disruption and inconvenience caused to passengers over the past few days.
'The issue is with the ship’s fuel pumps so we have been pressing the engine manufacturer, MTU, which is part of the Rolls Royce Group, to remedy the problem as soon as possible.
'We are pleased to confirm the issue was rectified overnight and Liberation is back to operating her full schedule today.'
However, the schedule for today's sailing was amended yesterday to cope with today's expected disruption. So while the boat was fixed, the vessel still had to operate a revised schedule.
That meant the vessel departed Poole nearly three hours early, at 9.15am and the leg between Jersey and Guernsey was cancelled. The company offered to fly foot passengers on a chartered service between the islands.
