Ferry returned to port due to engine damage
The 'Eleftherios Venizelos' returned to the port of Piraeus in the early morning of Sep 21, 2023, in order to be inspected, due to a mechanical failure in its No. 2 electric engine, while the ship was sailing in the Saronic Gulf. The ferry had set sail from the port of Piraeus with 689 passengers on board en route to Chania. The Piraeus Port Authority initially prohibited its departure, while after an inspection and presenting a class maintenance certificate from the classifier, the ship was permitted to resume the voyage.
Crew member injured on board
The Port Authority of Piraeus was informed on Sep 10, 2023, at noon that a crew member of the 'Eleftherios Venizelos,'a cabin pilot, was injured aboard the ship. A preliminary investigation was carried out by the Central Port Authority of Piraeus.
Quarantine has ended
The passengers and crew of the 'El Venizelos', a total of 152 Turks and eight others, have arrived in Turkey after being quarantined in Greece on April 3. They are currently under medical supervision. On March 9, the ferry had left the port of Çeşme for Spain; five days later it reached the port of Cadiz, but a quarantine was introduced in Spain at the time, so it had to return. It requested permission to return to Turkey through the ports of Kuşadası and Çeşme, but didn't receive the permission so it changed the course for Greece and arrived at the port of Piraeus. The crew was tested, then some of them were placed in open Athens hotels, and some remained on the ship.News schreiben
