The mod asked the IME Group to help with an urgent job in the Falklands, one of their vessels was experiencing electrical problems.

IME arranged for 2 of their experienced electrical engineers to be flown by the RAF from Brize Norton to the remote South Atlantic Archipelago. Initially they both had to take a crash course for Condo training and including a medical course. Then they were rushed to the Falklands, where over the next 7 days they made electrical repairs to the patrol vessel.

On satisfactory completion they were both sent back home. Another successful job completed by IME.
