A recent video shared by Babcock has captured the moment the RRS Discovery, accompanied by the skirl of the bagpipes, left Babcock's Rosyth facility following its maintenance stop over last week. 

Babcock’s Managing Director at Rosyth Sean Donaldson said:
“The work of the UK’s fleet of scientific research vessels is of national and global importance, delivering world-leading, multi-disciplinary scientific and technical expertise on the most pressing international environmental issues. The team at Babcock is extremely proud to be working closely with our customer the National Oceanography Centre, operator of RRS Discovery, to ensure the vessels’ maintenance programme is delivered on-time and on-budget, returning them safely back to the fleet to continue their vital operations. RRS Discovery was the first of the ships to complete her maintenance period in Rosyth and we wish her well on her next voyage, in this her centenary year".
