The Royal Fleet Auxiliary's newest vessel, Tidespring, makes her inaugural call to Portland Port

The Royal Fleet Auxiliary’s newest vessel, the Tidespring has made her inaugural call to Portland Port today.

Tidespring is the first of four Tide-Class tankers for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.  She can carry up to 19,000 cubic metres of fuel and 1300 cubic metres of fresh water.  The new fleet of tankers are expected to provide crucial support to the Queen Elizabeth Class carriers when they come into service.

Mr Bill Reeves, CEO at Portland Port commented “Portland Port and Harbour Authority has continued to work closely with the RFA since taking over responsibility of the harbour.  The Tidespring’s call at Portland is evidence of the good relationship between the port and the RFA.  The importance of this relationship is integral to Portland’s future as well as its past and it is hoped that this relationship will only grow stronger in years to come.”
