September 9, 2020 (Google Translation) – During the morning of today, the ARA notice “Bahía Agradable” entered the careening dock Nº2 of the Arsenal Naval Puerto Belgrano (ARPB), where different works will be carried out in the living work.
“The work will begin tomorrow; once finished, the notice will navigate again ”, highlighted the Chief of Dock of the Puerto Belgrano Naval Arsenal, Lieutenant Commander Guillermo Fabián Manfredi.
Regarding the personnel that will participate in the work, Captain Manfredi stressed that “a repair of this type involves personnel from the Machine Shop, Dams and Electricity, among others.”
The notice ARA “Bahía Agradable”, dependent on the Maritime Patrol Division, arrived last Sunday in Puerto Belgrano from its usual station at the Mar del Plata Naval Base.
In the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, work at the ARPB continued. After being dedicated to the production of gel alcohol, chinstraps and protective masks for the personnel, they resumed their own technical tasks to respond to the repair demands of the naval units.
It should be remembered that, a little less than a month ago, two units of the Argentine Navy came out of dry dock after the repairs; they were the corvette ARA “Spiro” and the speedboat ARA “Intrépida”.
