Confederation

The MV Confederation is back in service as of mid-morning. The ship experienced electrical issues causing the cancellation of the 6:30 am crossing.

The issue pertained to a sensor on the vessel and it has been resolved.

NFL vice-president Don Cormier said the ferry will resume its schedule this morning. A crossing left Caribou, Nova Scotia at 11:15 am.

Mr Cormier advised that a weather system approaching the Northumberland Strait could create further cancellations today and tomorrow.

The Confederation had issues with the engine controls in August which caused the ship to hit a pillar on the approach to the dock. It was the second time in the 2019 season a technical fault was experienced with the controls of the ship’s propulsion system.
