Making the refuelling more challenging was the fact that "Jan Wellem" had only improvised refuelling arrangements and inferior pumping equipment. While two destroyers were being refuelled at a time, a third was on guard in fjord, the remaining seven being spread around in the nearby area. By 04:00 on 10 April, "Jan Wellem" had managed to fully refuel three of the German destroyers, and was in the process of refuelling two more.
