The Interislander has been hit with another technical problem for its 31-year-old ferry Arahura. KiwiRail engineers have been able to identified the fault which forced the ferry to drop anchor when it tried to berth in Wellington.
This fault was related to the ferry’s propulsion shafts which stopped responding as the vessel was attempting to birth last Thursday. The reason for this is the 31-year-old electronic card that is the controller of the pitch of the propellers failed, from which the card has now been replaced.
