Ortelius under repairs

The vessel Ortelius is currently under repairs in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen due to a problem with the propulsion system. Technicians from the Netherlands are present on board to prepare the final stage of the repair job. However, further delay is being caused by a considerable waiting time of necessary spare parts. We expect to restart our program with passengers in Spitsbergen on 22 June 2016.
