Update On NZ Navy Support To HMS Nottingham

MEDIA STATEMENT


For Immediate Release 11 July 2002

Update On NZ Navy Support To HMS Nottingham

HMNZ Ships Endeavour and Te Mana continue to provide support to HMS Nottingham while she undertakes repairs. Both New Zealand ships are helping the Nottingham with such things as:

- cleaning down internal areas affected by salt water
- removal of damaged linings fittings and equipment
- standing watch over areas that have been shored up
- the removal of excess flood water, and
- onboard construction tasks.

Berthing services have been provided on board Endeavour and Te Mana to enable Nottingham’s crew the opportunity to shower and relax from the arduous damage control tasks in a clean and dry uniform.

Both New Zealand vessels are expected to remain on stand-by providing these services until Nottingham is self-supportive.
