Ferry operation during power outage Thursday

Ferry operation during power outage Thursday

I received this message from BC Ferries about Thursday's planned power outage:

BC Hydro has scheduled a power outage (as part of a systems upgrade) on Bowen this week. They can’t say with certainty that power will be interrupted at Snug Cove terminal, but they believe it will.

Therefore, BC Ferries is planning as follows:



· Outage may happen September 14 from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM

· BC Ferries will expect to use ship to shore power for three sailings from Snug, 3:10/4:15/5:15

· power hook up and detachment will cause a 5 minute delay each sailing and this will accumulate through the commuter sailings from Horseshoe Bay

· a BC Ferries electrician will go over on the first sailing in case there is an issue

· Ship crews are practicing ship-shore procedures to be ready

· a basic Service Notice to raise awareness of this possible effect on ship operations, and possible delays, will be issued
