MV Highlanders Experiences Mechanical Issue in Sydney Harbour

August 12, 2013

Late this morning, the MV Highlanders experienced a mechanical issue that resulted in a loss of power in Sydney Harbour.

The power and engines have since been restored and the vessel is currently preparing to dock in North Sydney. Once docked, inspections will take place to determine the exact cause of the power failure.

A clearer picture of any potential schedule impacts will be known following the docking of the vessel.
