Ferry suffered techncal trouble
The 'Express 1' suffered technical trouble on March 14, 2020, and the departure from Rønne to Ystad at 10:30 a.m. had to be cancelled. The Bornholm Linjen inserted the repalcement ferry 'Povl Anker' with a departure from Rønne at. 11:15 a.m. and from Ystad at 2.30 p.m. For this reason there was a delay on the route. The shipping company initially hoped that the 'Express 1' would be ready to start operating again with a departure from Rønne at 2:30 p.m. In fact the ship left the port at 6.30 p.m. The Bornholm Line states that the express ferry Express 1 is ready to sail again. Due to technical problems, the ferry was canceled all day and replaced by M / F Povl Anker at Rønne-Ystad. The fast ferry is repaired and leaves from Rønne at 18:30 and returns from Ystad again at 20:30.
Ferry engine broke down
The "Express 1" suffered a broken engine on July 27, affecting all departures to and from Bornholm for both the "MAX" and the "Express 1" on that day and on July 29 as the ship slowed down after it lacked an engine. During the repairs, the Bornholm Line has sailed to completely new timetables. Departures were delayed between twenty minutes and up to 3,5 hours. But the Bornholm line has chosen not to deploy the "Povl Anker" or to change ferries passengers should sail with, despite the hour-long delays as not to cause too much confusion. They expected the engine to be operating again on July 30.
Ferry had electric problem
In the morning of July 4, 2019, the "Express 1" suffferd a problem with the electric system of the bow thruster, which delayed the ship for just over an hour. She sailed out of the port of Rønne and headed for Ystad at 4 a.m., one hour and one quarter later than scheduled. The delay affected all departures until the afternoon.
