Notice January 20, 2017 Please be advised that the continuation of the required legislated maintenance work to permit the Flanders to continue providing service, will proceed this week-end.
This means the Flanders, on completion of it’s schedule Friday night, will then proceed to Long Pond. The vessel will be out of service for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
The work entailed, once started, would prevent the Flanders from being able to respond to emergency call-outs, and this coupled with the anticipated weather, the vessel will be placed at Long Pond, to allow access to the vessel by the contractors despite the weather.
The Beaumont will provide service as weather allows and there will be an Enhance crew provided to cover all 3 days.
The anticipated weather will no doubt cause some delays and or service interruptions and possibly may need some adjustments as the week-end proceeds, for both vessels. Updates will be provide by the vessels as often and as early they are needed.
The Flanders should be able to resume normal service with the Beaumont Hamel, on the two vessel service, on Tuesday morning.
