IT Intrepid - off again

1. IT Intrepid sailing form Halifax in April.

The cable ship IT Intrepid sailed Saturday night for  the Trinity Bay area of Newfoundland to make an emergency cable repair.
The ship had been working with its ROV on the Deep Panuke field, but I think it was called off that work on Friday, to come back into Halifax and gear up for the Trinity Bay job.
As a Barbados flag ship it would need a coasting license to work in Canadian waters. However as there are no Canadian flag cable ships to do the work I imagine that an accelerated licensing process will be used in an emergency situation.
Unfortunately the Canadian Transportation Agency web site is down so I have no way of checking.
