Material Status

The TRITON is an 18 year old vessel that has been rigorously maintained to DNV-GL Class (commercial) since Gardline acquired the ship in 2004 from the UK Government. Class is currently suspended whilst the ship is laid up pending long term charteror sale, when Class will be restored by the current owners of TRITON. Until recently, the ship has also had to meet very stringent Australian Government operational readiness and reliability requirements. TRITON is in very good condition for its age and is assessed as about half way through its operational life. There are currently no major defects that will affect the operation of the ship now in its primary OPV and secondary hydrographic and oceanographic survey roles and no major equipment change out or overhaul is planned to take place until the next scheduled docking in early 2020, when the port main engine will be due for change out. An un reconditioned spare engine (the previous starboard engine changed out for a new one in 2015) is held as a rotatable spare.
