The RMS St Helena has been experiencing difficulties during the reassembly of the port propeller hub following a scheduled survey. AWSML are working with Rolls Royce, the manufacturers of the system, and Lloyds Register to find an acceptable solution.

It is likely that the ship will remain in Dry Dock later than originally scheduled. This may have an impact on loading cargo and the departure time from Capetown for the next scheduled voyage.

A further update will be issued tomorrow, Friday 1 September 2017, when it is hoped more information on the timescale for the work to be completed will be available.
