German Navy’s combat support ship EGV Frankfurt am Main on Wednesday arrived in Kiel where it will be repaired by German Navy Yards.

The shipbuilder will be working on damages Frankfurt am Main sustained entering the Wilhelmshaven navy base late in the evening on March 16.

The combat support ship was reversing into a sea lock at the naval station when its stern made contact with the lock.

The ship had to be towed from Wilhelmshaven to Kiel as it could not move under its own propulsion.

Frankfurt am Main will be dry-docked after the maritime festival Kiel Week concludes.

The value of the repair contract was not disclosed but German news site Kieler Nachrichten reported that the value of work is in the seven figure region.
