HMNZS AOTEAROA REPLENISHMENT AT SEA TRIAL

The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) HMNZS Aotearoa (A 11) conducting Replenishment At Sea (RAS) Station Keeping Trials off the South Korean coast recently. Accompanied by a Philippine Navy BRP José Rizal (150), the trials assessed the ability for a ship to approach and remain alongside Aotearoa as a confirmation of the ship’s pressure and suction zones during refuelling or replenishment. The trials have validated HMNZS Aotearoa ability to undertake replenishment-at-sea operations, ahead of deliveries to the respective operators. Aotearoa and José Rizal were both built by South Korean shipbuilder, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).
