It will replace FIPASS, an updated floating facility first used in 1982.

FIPASS is a fascinating subject and something that still has relevance today for ship to shore logistics

Good news for the Falklands Islanders. Can’t wait to see Argentina’s reaction though!

If Argentina wasn’t stupid, they would have sold the Falklands something similar… then expand their own ports to be able to handle oil tankers and boost up their big ship repair/maintainance facilities.

Provided that they arn’t stupid. Which is a big “?”.
