US Fast Sealift ship calls
Dec 12, 2005
The US Fast Sealift ship USNS Denebola (T-AKR 289) arrived in Durban on Sunday (11 December) to load bunkers.
USNS Denebola is of the same class of Fast Sealift vessels as the USNS Antares, USNS Algol and USNS Altair which have called in Durban previously. Since then others of the class have called at Cape Town rather than Durban but on this occasion the shortage of fuel at the Cape port (see Ports & Ships News dated 9 December) is thought to have forced the ship’s diversion.
In January another regular naval visitor is due in Durban for a short courtesy call. This is the French Navy patrol frigate FNS Nivose which is expected between 26 and 30 January 2006.
