Uruguay issued in 2016 a miniature sheet for the 100th Anniversary of the Naval Oceanographic Office. On the stamp of 20p is depict the Casona Antonio Lussich, the main building of SOHMA, in the border of the sheet, on the right the shield of SHOMA and on the left the hydrographic launch TRIESTE.
I got from Mr. Erhard Jung the following information on the TRIESTE.
Built as a hydrographic launch by the yard of Massimo Petronio, Trieste, Italy for the Uruguay Navy.
Displacement 13.6 ton, dim. 13.50 x 3.30 x 0,90m.(draught)
Powered by2 Volvo Penta TAMD 42 diesel engines, with KaMeWa K 25 Hydrojet thrusters, speed 16 knots.
Range 550 mile by a speed of 14 knots.
Crew 4
12 March 2001 commissioned at Montevideo.as TRIESTE.

The TRIESTE hydrographic launch is, together with the OYARVIDE (ROU 22), one of the two vessels of the Navy of Uruguay specifically built for the bathymetric survey in Uruguayan waters. The crew consists of trained personnel for navigation and maintenance, while the appropriate personnel in hydrography in which she operates (usually composed of an Official Hydrographer and between two to three crew members), embarks on the occasion of carrying out the works, coming from the Service of Oceanography, Hydrography and Meteorology of the Navy (SOHMA). Its base port is the Marina of Santa Lucía, in front of Santiago Vázquez.

Construction and incorporation
The TRIESTE was built on the Massimo Petronio shipyards, Trieste, in northern Italy, built to carry out bathymetric survey tasks in fluvial and coastal waters, with modern equipment and complying with the standards of the International Hydrographic Organization. (IHO).
On 13 March 2001, in the presence of the then President of the Republic , Dr. Jorge Batlle Ibañez , the President of Italy , Carlo Azeglio Ciampi , Commanders in Chief of the Armed Forces of both countries and various national and foreign authorities, the delivery ceremony of the Hydrographic vessel granted by the International Maritime Academy of Trieste took place in the Port of Montevideo , named TRIESTE in its honor of the building place, the Uruguay flag was already hoisted one day before.
The delivery of the vessel responded to the "Agreement of formation for the fluviomarítima security", signed by Uruguay with the European Union , being destined to the support of the tasks of the hydrographic ship OYARVIDE (ROU 22) in the layout of the denominated "Safe Water Lanes" that would connect the high seas with the ports in that area. Assuring the non-existence of obstacles of navigation. The width of the lanes is six nautical miles and will increase in some important sections.

Characteristics and capabilities
The TRIESTE belongs to Class 100 A / 1.1 NAV.S.ST, the same being the first construction in its series. Its propulsion is by means of two Hydrojet Motors, which avoids the presence of appendices in the submerged part of the ship, thus facilitating both the navigation in shallow waters and the launching and recovery operations at sea of the instruments; also significantly reduces vibrations on board, increasing comfort for the crew and long-levity equipment. In this way an excellent maritime capacity with optimum propulsive performance is ensured.
The ship is capable of operating in coastal waters, within twenty miles off the coast, with an range of 550 nautical miles at continuous cruising speed of 14 knots, with a maximum speed of 16 knots. The hull is subdivided into 5 watertight areas; the form of the living quarters derives from the experience acquired in the projects and in the construction of units for heavy uses, assuring to this type of unit remarkable operational advantages and high safety in navigation. In order to accommodate 4 crew members, it has a cabin with a U-shaped sofa that can be transformed into two bunks, plus two folding bunk beds. It also has a bathroom and a small kitchen.
