The article titled Major crisis for disaster relief vessel contains significant factual errors even after responses were provided to the journalist's questions.
There has been no significant impact on the ship's program as HMAS Canberra is presently undergoing a planned maintenance period.
Defence’s response to the journalist stated that the root cause of the fault has not yet been established and a technical investigation, in parallel with the repair activity, was underway. Until the technical investigation is complete, any suggestion of the possible cause of the fault is speculation.
