MV Kanawan back in operation, MV Sabanto in drydock for rehabilitation
The Transport and Harbours Department (T&HD) on Thursday confirmed that the MV Kanawan has restarted ferrying its daily Supenaam-Parika route.
The vessel began operating on Saturday last, after a month of docking rehabilitation.
With its return, the daily Supenaam-Parika schedule remains in place with departure time (from Supenaam) at 05:00 AM.
The vessel will continue on a ‘touch and go’ basis throughout the day depending on the traffic and tide.
The MV Kanawan will be supported by the MV Malali, this is due to the MV Sabanto proceeding to the dockyard for rehabilitation, as of Tuesday, July 5, 2022. Docking and rehabilitation will take approximately one month.
“The management of T&HD would like to thank the travelling public for their patience, as the agency works to ensure all vessels on its fleet are sea-worthy,” a press statement noted.
