Esbern Snare inspected in foreign port

The Danish warship Esbern Snare has been busy for more than a year since the ship first participated in the NATO antipiracy-operation off the Horn of Africa and in January this year participated in the task of getting chemical weapons transported out of Syria, the Danish led operation RECSYR. The ship is expected to be back in Denmark just before Christmas, so it was necessary to carry out a major overhaul and repair in a foreign port

"The operating time was exceeded and therefore we had to do it since it was not currently getting Esbern Snare returned to Denmark," says Commander René Olsson. Instead, the planned overhaul is the largest ever on a warship outside Denmark.

There would, among other things 26 power units being replaced in the ship's engines, and all necessary components were transported all the way to Abu Dhabi, where the ship was in port for 11 days.

"We got 11 days in port, and during that time, the task had to be solved. We finished 14 hours before Esbern Snare had to ship out again" says René Olsson.

In May, Esbern Snare was replaced by the frigate Peter Willemoes in operation RECSYR and Esbern Snare then went back to the Indian Ocean, where until December, it participated in an anti-piracy operation.
