Ferry service interrupted due to technical failure
The service between Anda and Lote was suspended on March 27, 2017, due to technical problems with the "Årdal", causing queues on the ferry wharf at Lote. The ship had suffered a failure of one of the ramps at 1.30 a.m. and was sent for repair to the Bolsønes shipyard in Lote. Also the spare ferry had a technical problem, and the reserve ferry "Gulen" from Sogn would take several hours to arrive.
