Navantia to assist Brazil in repair of Venezuelan OPV

Navantia has signed an agreement with Brazilian company ECOVIX-ENGEVIX to assist with the repair of the Venezuelan offshore patrol vessel (OPV) Warao (PC 22).
The Spanish state-owned company, which built the Avante 2400-class vessel known as the Patrullero Oceanico para la Vigilancia de la Zona Economica Exclusiva (POVZEE) by the Venezuelan Navy, said it will be providing technical support and replacement parts for the vessel's propulsion and control systems.
The 2,400 tonne Warao was taking part in the 'Venbras 2012' bilateral exercise with sister ship Kariña (PC 24) and Brazilian Navy ships when it ran aground.
