Sinking Water Taxi stabilised

The National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO) says the Water Taxi “Carnival Runner” has been stabilized.

The water taxi, which has not been operational for some time, began taking on water at about
4 a.m. yesterday.

Carnival Runner is one of the four (4) high-speed catamarans built in 2009 and commissioned
into service on October 26, 2010.

According to NIDCO, the vessel was in active service until August 2015 and since then has remained inoperational (laid up status) due to mechanical issues.

The cost to effect all repairs on this vessel is estimated to be approximately TT$30 Million.
