Schedule text: The delivery of the Heavy Replenishment at Sea (HRAS) project of MSP has completed and the project has proved that the 5 tonne replenishment at sea capability can be delivered. Overall, the MARS Tanker project is on track to deliver four ships by the project end date. A significant number of key build milestones have been achieved: Cut Steel for Ships 2-4 were all achieved on time (Nov 14, Jun 15 and Dec 15), Keel Lay for Ships 2 & 3 also achieved on time (Jun and Dec 15 ), and Launch of Ship 1 took place as planned in October 2015. However, the build programme is behind schedule due to complexities encountered during construction. This is being monitored and managed in conjunction with the Contractor (DSME).
