Greek maritime company Minoan<.> Flying Dolphins (MFD<.>) has asserted that the vast majority of its fleet abides by the EU`s Eurosolas directive relating to safety in merchant shipping.



In a statement by MFD, owners of the Express Samina passenger ferry which sank last Tuesday off the Cycladic resort island of Paros, the company stated that of its 74 vessels, only 14 require adjustments in order to meet the requirements. The company said the Samina complied with the regulations.



MFD said that adjustments were scheduled for eight of these ships before they were placed on other routes at the start of 2001.



Due to the urgent transport needs resulting from the general immobilisation of passenger ships, our firm is working rapidly to ensure requirements are met on four vessels, the statement read.



The Express Santorini, Express Aris, Express Artemis and Express Apollon were all due to begin operating again by this week, while the 10 remaining vessels will be confined to port while adjustments are made. They will not begin operating until the start of 2001.
