Capitaine Wallis v408 N/Sofrana Surville 294N – vessel and service update

Dear Valued Customer,

We are pleased to announce a service update on the delayed cargo originally booked on the “Capitaine Wallis Voyage 408N” for Vanuatu. NPDL have made the decision to divert the “Southern Pearl” so she can pick up the Vanuatu destined cargo, recently re-booked on the “Sofrana Surville Voyage 294N”.

All cargo for Santo Luganville and Port Vila, will now discharge in Noumea and tranship onto the “Southern Pearl Voyage 1523N” for delivery to Vanuatu. This will avoid any delays caused by the
“Sofrana Surville’s” longer vessel rotation to Vanuatu.

Our last expected ETA of the 12th and 13th of April in Santo Luganville and Port Villa via the “Sofrana Surville”, can now be brought forward as follows:

Thank you for your patience while we worked on a solution to minimise any disruption caused by urgent repairs to the “Capitaine Wallis”. To ensure continuity of our NOUVAPAC service for the following voyage we will be bringing the “Capitaine Magellan” out of dry dock to perform the next NOUVAPAC sailing in early April from Auckland.

If you have any questions or queries on these changes, please contact your NPDL representative.
