The Brazilian Navy has acquired a diving support vessel (DSV) formerly operated by Bahraini company Adams Offshore.

Delivered by Spain’s Balenciaga Shipyard in 2009, the 85-metre-long Adams Challenge (pictured) will replace NSS Felinto Perry as the Brazilian Navy’s sole submarine rescue vessel.

A cadre of 35 officers and enlisted sailors are currently in Abu Dhabi, where Adams Challenge is moored, to undergo familiarisation and training prior to bringing the vessel to Brazil.
