August 7, 2019 (Google Translation) – At the end of July, the ARA “Granville” corvette entered the dry dock of the Integrated Port Services (SPI) company located near the port of Mar del Plata. The unit, belonging to the Maritime Patrol Division, will be subject to general maintenance.
The joint work of the company’s operators, tugboats and the endowment of the unit allowed the ship to be transported to the dike safely and effectively. The unit will remain for about a month, during which basic fairing tasks will be carried out – such as hydrojet, helmet painting, among others -, hull valve travel, drilling, measurements and strikes, among others.
The enlistment of the corvette is intended to prepare the unit to fulfill the functions of control of the sea and the Ship of the Station in the city of Ushuaia, during the months of September-October.
