UK agrees sale of HMS Ocean to Brazil

20/02/2018

The MOD has agreed to sell HMS Ocean to the Government of Brazil after 20 years of service.

Sold to the Brazilian Navy for around £84M, the profit generated from the sale will be reinvested in defence at a time when the Royal Navy is being strengthened with two types of brand new frigates and two huge aircraft carriers.

Throughout HMS Ocean’s impressive 20 years service, she has covered more than 450,000 nautical miles. Her military record spans from Operation Palliser during the Sierra Leone civil war to Operation Ellamy as part of an international coalition in Libya in 2011.

Most recently, HMS Ocean bolstered the hurricane relief effort in the Caribbean last summer. It is fitting that one of her final operations mirrored that of her first, when in early 1999 she was deployed to Honduras and Nicaragua in the aftermath of Hurricane Mitch.

HMS Ocean will decommission from the Royal Navy in March, with plans for the Brazilian Navy to take possession of the ship in June 2018. Modifications to the ship will be made by UK companies Babcock and BAE Systems in the meantime, with this work funded by Brazil.
