Southern Trader V491 berthed in Auckland on the morning of the 08 th May to commence cargo operations. Her #2 crane has been experiencing operational issues and currently under repair. We have deployed a shore crane to keep the cargo operations going, however we have lost time on schedule as a result.
We are hopeful that she will be able to depart Auckland this evening with the crane repaired and expected in Nuku’alofa late on the 15th May
These delays will be reflected in this week’s schedules.
