Condor: Repairs are on track

Post by GD on Sat 18 Jun 2011, 5:23 pm

Condor Ferries say repairs on two of their fast ferries are on track.

The gearbox bearing in one of the four engines on Condor Rapide was fixed on Friday.

And Condor say work on the main engine bearing on Condor Vitesse is expected to be completed today (Saturday).

This afternoon's crossing from Weymouth was cancelled: passengers were offered seats on the ferry from Poole instead. (from CTV)

I wonder for how long...

They have the power of Mrs McNaulty-Baur behind them - I distinctly remember her saying a couple of years ago that we didn't need competition on the routes as Condor gave us good value for money!!!!

You cannot run diesel engines at high revs non stop , why do you think they keep breaking down , and to blame someone else is just stupid . IMO they (condor) have been given to many chances problem after problem , get rid of them !!

OVERLOADING the engines rather than a misassembled gearbox has led to recent problems with the Condor Rapide, the German manufacturer has claimed.

Renk AG manufactured the gearboxes for the Express, Vitesse and Rapide catamarans in 1997 and 1998 in Australia, and has helped to maintain them since.

Last week, Condor managing director Simon Edsall said that the problems with the Rapide came down to the gearbox being misassembled by Renk in 2010.

However, Renk general marine manager Franz Hoppe has rejected this, saying it had warned Condor that the operator was overworking its ferries.

Seems like Condor will try and blame anyone but themselves..
