JSS Karel Doorman, RFA Argus Perform Uncommon RAS

JSS Karel Doorman, the Netherlands Navy’s Joint Support Ship, conducted replenishment-at-sea (RAS) with Royal Navy’s RFA Argus.

The two ships met off the coast of Freetown, Sierra Leone, and engaged in an unusual RAS. During supply operations the vessels are normally positioned next to each other, sailing in the same direction. In this case, both vessel had only the right side of the ship available for RAS.

Supported by Dynamic Positioning System and anchor, the vessels safely undertook the operation transferring 550 tons of fuel.
