The POLA project (Patrulla Oceánica de Largo Alcance) has reached a major milestone after receiving the combat system module in Salina Cruz, Mexico.

At the 30th of August the MV Rolldock SUN arrived with combat system module in the harbour of Salina Cruz. The same day the preparation activities for offloading the module were started and the hull of the POLA was moved alongside the Rolldock SUN.
The next day, the 31st of August, at first daylight a GO was given to hoist the module out of the cargohold. This activity took approximately 3 hours ending with the full load of module 5 on the floating POLA hull. After activities to secure the module she was towed back towards the drydock of the ASTIMAR 20 shipyard for further final outfitting.
