Epsilon is showing as cancelled from Dub tomorrow due to technical reasons? anybody know what is happening?
Yes.....
Since nobody is gonna bite

I have heard she made contact with the berth on Thursday night/Friday morning and may have been holed, but can't confirm that last bit (its a bit hard to see from Belfast ;) ).  She has been tied up opposite the berths and off service ever since to my knowledge.
Epsilon appears to have moved in the past few days, but only across the river.  The following is posted on the IF service update page:

Thanks for the info Steve! Any idea if she will need dry docking or will be back in service soon?

From what I hear she will not need dry docking. She is due to enter service Tuesday at 14.15 ex Dublin, if all goes to plan.

 Noticed Ulysses docked in Berth 52 (Ro-Ro 7), alongside Seatruck Precision (?) yesterday 26th May. Thought this was unusual, have never seen Ulysses on this berth?  Anyone any idea why this was?

Dublin port want to do some work on the link span on her normal berth which will take about a day. So Ulysses will possibly use the other berth while the work is carried out. Last night was a test to see how she fitted on the berth.

Just missed that, I was on the 15.10 Nordica out of Dublin, any photos?

Epsilon stopped off in Rosslare today? Anybody got an idea why she did not complete the run to Dublin?



Re: Irish Ferries Fleet movements Reply #474 on: June 23, 2014, 06:00:13 PM
She's dropping off Trade Cars from France Mightmax.  Has done it a few times now - good to see her kept busy!

Cheers for that Pete, just it said on the IF website that she was due into Dub on schedule.



Re: Irish Ferries Fleet movements Reply #476 on: June 23, 2014, 09:15:27 PM
She actually went to Dublin first, then back down to Rosslare - as shown on AIS.
