Following a request for assistance from the Argentine Government, the Royal Navy patrol ship HMS Protector has been deployed to join efforts to find and rescue an Argentine submarine ARA San Juan reported missing in the South Atlantic Ocean.

HMS Protector has arrived in the search area on Sunday to assist with the search along with Royal Navy’s specialist Submarine Parachute Assistance Group and the Falklands Islands patrol vessel HMS Clyde which is returning from a patrol to South Georgia in order to assist.


Siem Offshore, a Norwegian shipping company, is asking for help from banks to ensure its survival through the downturn.

In preparation for an extended downturn in the offshore supply market the company has issued a request to its banks for instalment relief and certain other changes to its bank loan facilities to ensure that the company is able to service its debt obligations through the downturn.

 


A Royal Navy minehunter HMS Cattistock and a team of divers have destroyed a 500lb wartime bomb which was dredged up and dropped next to a major North Sea gas pipeline.

The bomb was found 50 miles off the coast of Norfolk after a Dutch trawlerman pulled the air-dropped WWII device onto the deck of his vessel caught in fishing nets.

 


Marin Teknikk has entered into an agreement with Debmarine Namibia to design and engineer a new MT6027 seabed mining vessel.

The vessel will follow the MT6022 SS Nujoma delivered in 2016 to Debmarine Namibia. The new seabed mining vessel, with a length of 177 meters and a breadth of 27 meters, will be the largest ship ever designed by Marin Teknikk, the company said.
