LNG-fueled research vessel Atair, being built on behalf of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) has been floated out at the German Naval Yards Kiel. 

The general contractor for the vessel, first of its kind, is Fassmer Shipyard while the hull, superstructure and parts of the outfitting were constructed at the German Naval Yards Kiel.

The survey vessel is planned to be used for wreck search and underwater surveying, German Naval Yards Kiel said in a statement.

Harald Fassmer, managing director of Fassmer Shipyard said, “the building of the vessel is very complex and large parts of outfitting works are still ahead of us.”

The towing of the ship to Fassmer shipyard is scheduled for the middle of March, where installation and finishing works in all trades will be continued, he said.

After finishing the trials the newbuilding is planned to be delivered to the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) in spring 2020.
