The plans for a ferry between Eemshaven and Rosyth in Scotland have been postponed for about half a year, however there is no question of canceling the service.
The shipping company TEC-Farragon initially wanted to start in October with a ferry service between the two cities. It is now likely that the service will begin in April. The reason for the delay is that a practice voyage to agree on docking procedures has been postponed.
It was originally planned that the practice would take place this Tuesday and Wednesday: to examine whether the ships could safely arrive in Eemshaven. This practice has now been moved to a later date.
In the end, the first slated voyage date appeared to be too ambitious. According to the parties involved, the new planning is more realistic. For example, a lot more preparation work still needs to be done in the port before boats can moor regularly.
There are, luckily, no plans to cancel the service, despite these teething problems.
