Galleons Passage hit causes $12,000 damage to Scarborough jetty

The Galleons Passage has damaged part of the jetty at the port on Scarborough, Tobago, after hitting it on Wednesday.

The National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) said that on Wednesday, upon its arrival in Tobago, the Galleons Passage came into contact with the jetty on its starboard (right) side, while docking at the port.

It said that this resulted in a slight blemish on the vessel and minor disturbance on the jetty’s railing. 

NIDCO said the incident did not obstruct the 4pm return sailing to Port of Spain the same day, nor sailings that are scheduled for the rest of the week.

It said that investigations are ongoing for repair works on the jetty and are estimated to cost approximately $12,000.00.
