Polish naval command vessel set for repairs
A Polish consortium has signed an agreement with the Polish Naval Port Headquarters in Świnoujście for primary and dock repairs of the Polish Navy's ORP Kontradmirał Xawery Czernicki command vessel.
The consortium includes PGZ, PGZ Stocznia Wojenna and Stocznia Remontowa Nauta.
The agreement, worth $22.23 million, covers thorough repairs of the minesweeping vessel, which acts as a command vessel of Polish minesweeping forces in national and allied ship groups.
The repairs are required as the vessel is due to be included in the NATO Response Force from 2021. The vessel will perform tasks including commanding ship groups involved in minesweeping operations; ensuring safety of naval routes; carrying out rescue and fire extinguishing operations; monitoring vessel traffic; providing logistics support for other vessels, including deliveries of fuel, water and food; and acting as a depot-ship for own and allied forces.
