Ferry connection shut down due to engine damage
The Viking Line closed its high-speed ferry connection to Helsinki ahead of schedule. One of the engines of the" Viking FSTR", the catamaran ferry originally expected to operate on the Tallinn-Helsinki route until Oct. 22, 2017, was damaged and forced the company to cancel its crossings on four days already last week. Viking Line announced on Oct 17 that they were closing the season of their high-speed ferry early. One of the four engines has been faulty, and the four days of downtime had also contributed to the decision. The engine broke on the first crossing after the repair from Helsinki to Tallinn last Saturday and caused a 20 to 30-minute delay. It would not be possible to get the engine fixed this week, and looking at the weather forecasts for the remaining time in October heavy winds would only mean even more delays so it was decided to shut down the connection.Upload News
