New Cranes Needed for Irish Coastal Patrol Vessels

L.É. CIARA

Irish Naval Service, based in Haulbowline, County Cork, has invited tenders for the provision and commissioning of four marine cranes.

 

The cranes will be mounted on the Naval Service’s two coastal patrol vessels, L.É. ORLA and L.É. CIARA.

The two coastal patrol vessels  pertain to the Peacock Class patrol corvettes built for the Royal Navy. They were bought from the British Royal Navy and commissioned into service in the 1980s. During their service these vessels have been involved in some of the largest seizures of narcotics and arms in Irish history.

L.É. ORLA was formally the HMS SWIFT, while L.É. CIARA was formally the HMS SWALLOW.

Deadline for submission of bids is March 3, 204.
