Dock maintenance

Dock maintenance of RV Thalassa in 2011

Dock maintenance of RV Thalassa was carried out in June and July 2011 at the PIRIOU shipyards in Concarneau. The test programme was scheduled from July 27 to August 5.

Upgrading of scientific apparatus having taken place gradually since recommissioning in 1997, no major modernisation was deemed necessary. However, the dock time did involve upgrading the IT and changes to some scientific apparatus. 2010 was devoted to preparing this dock maintenance period.
