FAST-ferry services between Jersey and Guernsey were cancelled yesterday because of an engine fault.
The Condor Liberation had been due to arrive at Elizabeth Harbour at 1.45 pm. However, following an overnight inspection, staff discovered a technical fault with a turbo-charger on one of the ship’s engines.
In a brief statement on its website, Condor said: ‘During routine overnight inspections a technical problem with Liberation’s port main engines’ turbo-charger has been discovered.
In order to investigate the fault, and make appropriate repairs, it is unfortunately now necessary to cancel high-speed ferry services today [Sunday] between Guernsey and Jersey. All other services will be operated at a reduced speed.
‘Condor Ferries apologises for the inconvenience which this disruption will cause to customers’ journeys.’
