Esperanza Arrives in Singapore for Maintenance Period

Greenpeace ESPERANZA arrived in Singapore for a maintenance period at the ASL shipyard.

The vessel built as the VIKHR-4 in 1984 at Stocznia Polnocna / Gdansk under yard number B98/04 for the Russian Government was sold to Echo Shipping in 1998 and renamed ECHO FIGHTER before purchased by Greenpeace in 2002 (Stichting Phoenix) and renamed in ESPERANZA, the 72 mtr long ESPERANZA is managed and operated by Stichting Greenpeace Council in Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

To support the crew during their campaigning the ESPERANZA can carry 1 MBB-Bo-105 helicopter as seen above, (this type of helicopter was developed and made his first flight in 1967 and the production ended in 2001, due to the Bo 105 being superseded by the more modern Eurocopter EC 135, after 1,406 machines had been built), furthermore onboard are plenty fast “action” crafts available and ready to be launched overboard (right), the schedule is that the ESPERANZA will complete the maintenance period in Singapore at the end of this month and departs Westbound from Singapore for the next campaign.
