According to a representative of the ship repairing plant, the Undaunted transmission is scheduled for mid-next year, after a series of factory tests. The watchtower has been under repair since the 2014 of the year, initially it was planned to return to service at the end of the 2016 of the year, but during the detection, the need for a large amount of additional work was identified and the repair of the ship was extended. Also, a big delay in the repair of the ship was caused by the repair of the propulsion system of the ship made in Ukraine. According to the latest data, the ship was supposed to start mooring trials at the end of the 2018 year, but subsequently the delivery of the ship was again postponed.
It is expected that the "Undaunted" will be transferred to the fleet in the middle of 2020 year
