MV Chenega to be Delayed

Monday, March 07, 2005
In an expectation that the delivery of the state’s second fast vehicle ferry, M/V Chenega, will likely be delayed until late April or even May 1, the Alaska Marine Highway System decided to schedule the M/V Aurora for Prince William Sound service from May 15-June 30. AMHS reservations operators began taking reservations for the Aurora on February 22.

“The latest word we have from Derecktor Shipyards in Bridgeport, Conn., is that, due to problems with the shipyard’s electrical subcontractor, delays have been incurred with the equipment testing, dockside and sea trials. The Chenega will not be delivered until late April or as late as May 1,” said AMHS General Manager John Falvey. “In light of that extended delivery date, we will deploy the Aurora to Prince William Sound in late spring to provide the service the residents of that area expect.”
