More trouble with the Utne
On Sep 27 more problems occurred with the "Utne" which had to be replaced by a passenger boat on the Fedje-Sævrøy route in the evening. There was leakage in one oil cooler so that oil was inthe cooling water, and the ship was sidelined in Fedje. Operator Norled was in touch with the manufacturer Scania for spare parts and assistance. The service was usually being operated by the "Fedjefjord" which actually was under maintenance at a yard. On Sep 28 it was not clear when the "Utne" would be in operation again, but it was expected to take some time to get the ship back in service.
