After exactly one year in international operations in the Mediterranean and in operation Iraqi Freedom in the Arabian Gulf, the submarine SÆLEN was lifted back to Denmark on board the German heavy lift carrier GRIETJE.

This way of transportation was chosen to save both time and money, and all other equipment send to support both the submarine and the corvette OLFERT FISCHER during the operations in the Gulf were returned on board the carrier.

GRIETJE arrived Frederikshavn June 30, and the submarine could return to the sea after fourteen days of inboard transportation.
