On 03 October, the fully refitted minelayer Pansio has been handed over to the Finnish Navy. The mid-life upgrade procedure has been carried out by Atlas Elektronik Finland Oy together with Uki Workboat Oy as a subcontractor.

All three Pansio-class minelayers comprising Pansio, Porkkala and Pyhäranta will be refitted. Pansio boat is the first to be completed. The refitting will extend the use of the ships well into the 2030’s.
