Bulgarian Research Ship Docks at Port of Mar del Plata, Argentina for Supplies

Riyadh, March 17, 2023, SPA – Bulgarian Naval Research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421) is having a stopover in the Argentinian port of Mar del Plata, one of the ship’s stops on the way back to Bulgaria after participation in the 31st Bulgarian Antarctic mission on Livingston Island.
RSV 421 has docked at the Mar del Plata naval base after being assisted by two pilot boats.
The ship will remain in Argentina until March 20 to replenish its stocks of fuel, foodstuffs, and fresh water and will cross the Atlantic and make two more stops in Cartajena in Spain and Elevsina in Greece, before it finally arrives in Bulgaria by the end of April.
BTA’s Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only journalist who is traveling on board the ship to Livingston Island and back where he covered the Bulgarian expedition throughout its stay in Antarctica.
