    The first of the 120 Scania TCV's to be delivered before the end of the year, all delivered by 2023.
    The P50's MLU is ongoing.
    MRV ship still in planning. (Only the four P60's are still operational, everything else tied up.)
    The Software Defined Radios will not enter service before 2023.

    Not correct. L.E. Ciara is in planned maintenance which means still operational and on notice for sea.
    L.E. Niamh undergoing repairs and due to sail on completion.

    LE Ciara is in the dry dock out of the water, it's not operational and won't be for a while. LE Niamh won't be operational again until late 2021 or 2022.

    What is a while?.

    Drydocking periods can go from 2 weeks to 2 month depending on projects planned.


    The ship still remains on notice for sea regardless.

    Niamh has yet to commence her MLEP and won't until Roisin is back operational.

    Niamh will be back in early 2021 after repair are completed.


    People tend to use the fact that ships are in planned maintainance to declare them "tied up".

    This is not the case.

    Ships do not stay at sea 24/7 365. It is impossible to keep them operational without maintenance, and more importantly crew rest.

    Ciara's drydocking was planned and incorporated into her patrol plan.
