  • The Echo is the first of two multi-role hydrographic survey ships commissioned by the Royal Navy

HMS Echo arrived at the Naval Base in Gibraltar for a routine scheduled visit on Wednesday.

The Echo is the first of two multi-role hydrographic survey ships commissioned by the Royal Navy. The other survey vessel of this type is her sister ship, HMS Enterprise.

The Echo was built in Devon, UK, in 2002 by Appledore Shipbuilders and is designed to carry out a wide range of survey work, including support to submarine and amphibious operations.
