Natalie’s counsel to the board has been vital to the company’s continued growth and success, and in particular to navigating the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.”Daniel Jaczmien Bartosz Alksnin.

First steel cut for Royal New Zealand Navy’s new tanker

first_img View post tag: HHI Construction of the Royal New Zealand Navy’s largest ever vessel, the HMNZS Aotearoa, officially started on January 31 with a steel cutting ceremony at Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Ulsan shipyard in South Korea.The ice-going tanker will be launched in March next year, and enter service in 2020.The tanker acquisition was approved by the New Zealand government in June 2014 allowing for a tender to be released in March 2015. The contract was awarded to Hyundai Heavy Industries in July that year for $493 million.Aotearoa will be able to refuel two ships at the same time while underway, carry and refuel New Zealand Defence Force helicopters, produce and store water, and store and transport bulk goods.HMNZS Aotearoa has twice the displacement of its decommissioned predecessor HMNZS Endeavour and will carry 30 per cent more fuel.HMNZS Aotearoa will also be a world-first naval “Environship”, with Hyundai using the Rolls-Royce Environship concept design under licence. The design incorporates a new wave-piercing hull, which reduces resistance and lowers fuel use, while its combined diesel electric and diesel propulsion plant has lower fuel emissions than older vessels.The design and capabilities of HMNZS Aotearoa were announced by the Ministry of Defence in 2016. The cost includes the tanker’s enhanced “winterisation” capabilities, such as ice-strengthening for operations in Antarctica, including resupplying McMurdo Station and Scott Base. HMNZS Endeavour was not Antarctic-capable.The Defence White Paper 2016 identified Antarctica as a “focus on increasing international interest” while noting the New Zealand Defence Force’s “critical role” in supporting personnel in the Ross Dependency and monitoring activity in the Southern Ocean.

Photo: Derek Fountain/Huntington Ingalls Industries View post tag: US Navy The US Navy’s newest America-class amphibious assault ship, future USS Tripoli (LHA 7), has completed acceptance trials.The aviation-centric ship spent three days underway in the Gulf of Mexico during the trials, before returning to the Ingalls Shipbuilding’s shipyard.The Navy’s Board of Inspection and Survey evaluated all of the ship’s major systems including propulsion, communications, navigation, combat systems and aviation capabilities.“The capability that our large deck amphibs bring to the fight is tremendous,” said Tom Rivers, amphibious warfare program manager for Program Executive Office (PEO) Ships. “Their ability to embark F-35 B Joint Strike Fighters and MV-22 Osprey enable this versatile platform to increase the lethality of our expeditionary warfighters.”Tripoli is the second ship of the America (LHA 6) class, built to facilitate forward presence and power projection. LHA 7 is the last Flight 0 ship planned for construction and features an enlarged hangar deck, realignment and expansion of the aviation maintenance facilities, an increase in available stowage for parts and support equipment, and increased aviation fuel capacity.LHA 8 will be the first Flight I ship, reincorporating a well deck to enhance expeditionary warfighting capabilities while maintaining the principal aviation characteristics of the Flight 0 ships.“There’s been a lot of hard work accomplished to get LHA 7 to this point”, said Capt. Nathan Schneider, Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair Gulf Coast. “The team’s focus is now on delivering the LHA 7 to the fleet in the best possible condition, fully capable and ready to deploy if called upon.”LHA 7 incorporates gas turbine propulsion plant, zonal electrical distribution, and fuel-efficient electric auxiliary propulsion systems first installed on USS Makin Island (LHD 8). LHA 7 is 844 feet in length, has a displacement of approximately 45,000 long tons and is capable of operating at speeds of over 20 knots.Once it enters service in the summer of 2020, future USS Tripoli will be capable of operating F-35B jets, like sister ship USS America in this US Navy photo View post tag: America-class View post tag: USS Tripoli Share this articlelast_img read more
