Tasports – update regarding King Island Shipping Services

The JOHN DUIGAN is currently in dry dock in Sydney and over the last 24 hours the Docking team has undertaken further investigation of the damaged stern tube seal and found evidence of significant bearing failures. We are working with engineers and part manufacturers to complete a full assessment, however, we anticipate this will lead to a minimum 3 week delay with resumption of service now forecasted for late July as parts are sourced globally.

Bass Island Line will continue to arrange alternate shipping arrangements for critical freight during this period, ensuring continuity of shipping services to the King Island community.
