The vessel will be ice-strengthened for operations in the Southern Ocean and Antarctica

The New Zealand government has approved the acquisition of new fleet tanker for the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) for NZD493 million (USD349 million), the country's minister for defence, Gerry Brownlee, announced on 18 July.

The platform, which will replace the RNZN's 30-year old HMNZS Endeavour , will be built by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and is expected to be delivered in 2020.

New Zealand picks Saab communications system for future fleet tanker

The Royal New Zealand Navy has contracted Saab to deliver their TactiCall communications system for New Zealand’s future fleet tanker.

The new Maritime Sustainment Capability vessel, HMNZS Aotearoa, will be fitted with the integrated communications system which interconnects communication technologies regardless of radio band, frequency or hardware.

Electronic Navigation Ltd (ENL) will provide in-service support as Saab’s partner in New Zealand.

“This is our first sale in the region for a newly-built naval ship. The cooperation and strong partnership with ENL solidifies our presence in New Zealand,” says Ellen Molin, Head of business area Support and Services.

HHI Cut 1st Steel of Royal New Zealand Navy Future HMNZS Aotearoa Tanker

February 2018
Posted On Sunday, 11 February 2018 11:49

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) started construction of the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) future fleet tanker HMNZS Aotearoa. The first steel cutting ceremony took place on January 31st 2018 at HHI's Ulsan shipyard in South Korea.

HMNZS Aotearoa will replace the fleet tanker HMNZS Endeavour that decommissions next year after more than 30 years of loyal service. Aotearoa will boast state of the art design and capability features including ice-strengthening and ‘winterisation’ features for operations in Antarctica. She will also be able to carry 12 containers of supplies and have the ability to produce 100 tonnes of fresh water each day which will make her invaluable when providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief.

She will carry 8,000 tonnes of diesel fuel which is enough to ‘fill up’ a frigate like Te Mana or Te Kaha 13.87 times. And she’ll be able to carry and operate a RNZAF NH90 helicopter. Aotearoa will have a core crew of 64 plus 11 flight crew.

The 24,000-tonne vessel is set to become the largest vessel ever operated by the Royal New Zealand Navy. It will be launched in March next year, and enter service in 2020.
