“This is a routine visit. The ship goes to port to let the crew recover after a long time at sea, as well as to stock up on fuel, food and other necessities,” says Stefan Norlin at the Naval Base and responsible for planning the naval visit.

The ship will be moored in the Stockholm Frihamnen port for four days.
