BAS Extends RRS Ernest Shackleton Charter

British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has declared its fourth option with GC Rieber for an extension of the bareboat charter for ‘RRS Ernest Shackleton’.

The extension is for one-year, and will be effective from August 2017, GC Rieber informed.

RRS Ernest Shackleton, built by Kverner Klevin Leirvik, was launched in 1995.

The vessel is primarily a logistics vessel used to transport cargo, fuel and passengers, and also has a basic scientific capability.

RRS Ernest Shackleton has been on a long-term charter with BAS since August 1999. BAS further holds one annual option to extend the bareboat charter.
