In this week’s edition of The Orcadian

This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now in shops and is available online here.

On the front page, we report the concerns of a Norwegian mechanic who worked on the Nordic Sea and claims that he tried to warn Orkney Islands Council marine officials of multiple issues with the vessel, ahead of its procurement.

The council has said that they were “open with the public from the start that Nordic Sea was by no means a finished product for Orkney waters,” and that it is hoped the vessel can be returned to service as soon as possible.
