In the midst of difficult weather conditions with falling snow, winds of up to 40 knots (approximately 80 kilometers per hour) and temperatures below zero, the Unit with base port in Puerto Williams carried out replenishment tasks in the Mayor’s Offices of Mar “Corriente”, “Navarino”, “Timbales” and “Yamana”, delivering the necessary logistical support for these places. Its “ready to arrive” status allows the Unit to contribute to southern connectivity in isolated sectors.

“The capabilities of this Unit together with the commitment of its staff allowed us to successfully carry out each of our tasks entrusted by the Institution, thus contributing to southern connectivity in isolated sectors. The mission was accomplished gradually and at a good pace, regardless of the adverse weather conditions we have had during navigation,” said the Commander of the Unit, Lieutenant Commander Sebastián Villarroel.
