NZ Issues Tender for Fleet Tanker

WELLINGTON — New Zealand's Ministry of Defence has issued a request for tender for a ship to replace the existing fleet tanker HMNZS Endeavour, commissioned in April 1988.

The tender specifies a range of 6,450 nautical miles at 16 knots (Endeavour has a range of 10,000 nautical miles and can attain 14 knots) and requires the new ship to spend up to 160 days at sea each year and 60 days alongside.

It's not ours.

It's ours in the sense that we'll have an exclusive contract for its use until both of our own AORs arrive.

RNZN's future fleet support vessel to arrive in New Zealand on 26 June

The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) has announced that its future fleet tanker/replenishment vessel is expected to sail into Auckland Harbour on 26 June following a 16-day journey from the South Korean coastal city of Ulsan where the 173.2 m-long vessel was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The auxiliary oiler replenishment (AOR) vessel, which will be known as HMNZS Aotearoa (A 11) once it enters service, is expected to be formally commissioned in late July at the Devonport Naval Base, replacing fleet replenishment tanker Endeavour , which was decommissioned in December 2017.



The ship’s homeport will be New Plymouth in the country’s western region of Taranaki. Ordered for NZD493 million (USD317 million) in 2016 under New Zealand’s Maritime Sustainment Capability (MSC) programme, the vessel, which has a displacement of 26,000 tonnes, was laid down in August 2018 and launched in April 2019.

Aotearoa , which will be capable of carrying 30% more fuel than Endeavour , will be the largest vessel operated by the RNZN.

The vessel will be able to carry 8,000 tonnes of diesel fuel, 1,550 tonnes of aviation fuel, and 250 tonnes of fresh water for resupply operations. It will also be capable of carrying up to 14 standard 20 ft containers and producing 100 tonnes of fresh water each day, according to the RNZN.

Honestly, we should have gone for one of these to help support forces up north.

Interesting the HMNZS Aotearoa has 6,000 more DWT, 1 m more draft, shorter range and 4 kts slower than a Berlin Class. Roughly the same capacity for bunker, aviation fuels. It would be interesting to have our new Protecteur-class, the Astreix and this along side each other for comparison.

I suspect that the difference in tonnage and speed is related to the ice reinforcement and shape of the hull. That would add a lot of weight. Similarly, an ice capable hull would be shaped differently and thus limit the speed that can be achieved.

I also suspect some of the weight difference comes from the superstructure: Aotearoa's superstructure is a lot more massive than a Berlin's one.
