    The last question about a grammatical tense today

    Hello.

    It is the last time I am asking you a question about a grammatical tense today.
    During the last three years, the shipyard repaired 6 ships. This July ferries X and Y, which sail under the flag of A, have undergone repairs at the shipyard. In August of this year MSR Gryfia has repaired ferry “Wolin”, another floating unit belonging to this owner.

    Does the bolded sentence use a proper grammatical tense?

    This time I think I am at least 80 % right because "this year" is not over yet. On the other hand, "In August of this year" is over.

    What's your opinion?

    I am all confused.

    Thank you.

    You need a past tense for a past time, in August of this year, just as you would for at five o'clock this morning.
