Ferry delayed due to technical trouble
on Sep 11, 2018, the "Stavangerfjord" had technical problems and failed to dock at Risavika in Sola at 7 p.m. Just before it arrived, the ferry turned around and went northward again. The captain announced to the passengers that there were technical problems as the crew discovered that it did not have contact with the program that controls the bow thruster. The ferry went for a while back and forth off the coast of Randaberg while trying to find the error. The manufacturer Rolls Royce was running a remote search. Around 8 p.m. the "Stavangerfjord" finally managed to dock at the wharf in Tananger. Norwegian report with photos: https://www.aftenbladet.no/lokalt/i/dd1Lk1/Danskebaten-matte-snu-ved-Risavika
