Royal New Zealand Navy frigate HMNZS Te Mana has arrived in Canada to start her combat management system upgrades.
The ship pulled into Canadian forces base Esquimalt on March 12 and will be modernized at Seaspan’s shipyard in Victoria, British Columbia.

Te Mana is starting the upgrade after completing a five-month engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.
The first of two NZ Navy Anzac-class frigate, HMNZS Te Kaha, started the 10-month refit in March 2018.

The contract for the upgrade of the Royal New Zealand Navy’s two Anzac-class frigates was signed between the New Zealand government and Lockheed Martin Canada on April 29, 2014.

Under the terms of the contract, Lockheed Martin Canada is responsible for the design, installation and integration of the CMS and a combat system trainer for the Devonport Naval Base in Auckland, as well as the procurement of new sensor and weapon systems for HMNZ ships Te Mana and Te Kaha.

Lockheed Martin Canada’s CMS 330 combat management system was initially developed for Canada’s Department of National Defence and then modified for the Royal New Zealand Navy with Canada’s support.

In addition CMS upgrades, the frigates will also be receiving MBDA’s Sea Ceptor vertical launched, active Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (Maritime) – CAMM(M) which will replace the current RIM7P NATO Seasparrow missile system.

Enquanto que a Nova Zelândia, procede aos upgrades em 2018/2019 ás duas Fragatas que são de  1996 e 1999 ou seja Navios com 22 e 20 anos, em Portugal, em 2019, ainda se discute se vale a pena efectuar upgrades às VdG que tem a bonita idade de 28 anos, é parecido não é ??

Key Points
•   A hydrographic and diving support vessel meant for the Royal New Zealand Navy has begun trials to validate its naval equipment
•   The service is on track to operate the ship by November

The Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN's) future hydrographic and diving support vessel, which will be known as HMNZS Manawanui once commissioned, has received its service livery and begun a series of sea trials off the coast of Denmark.

The trials are being used to confirm that naval equipment on board the ship are performing as expected, the RNZN said via its official social media account on 15 March. Images of the vessel accompanying the post indicate the hull number as A 09, although the ship's original name, Edda Fonn , is being retained until closer to its commissioning ceremony.

The 85 m vessel arrived in Frederikshavn, Denmark, from Norway in February, according to data from IHS Markit's Maritime Portal. It was previously in service as a commercial offshore support vessel and had arrived in Denmark to be fitted out according to RNZN requirements.

Edda Fonn was acquired by the New Zealand government in 2018 for NZD103 million (USD70 million). It was procured to fulfil operational gaps in the RNZN's diving support and maritime survey capabilities following the retirements of its hydrographic ship HMNZS Resolution in 2012 and dive tender HMNZS Manawanui in 2018.

Edda Fonn is 84.7 m long, has an overall beam of 18 m, a hull draught of 6.3 m, and is equipped with a 100-tonne salvage crane. Powered by four diesel-electric engines driving two azimuth propulsion systems, the 5,700-tonne vessel can reach a top speed of 13 kt.
The vessel can accommodate a core crew of 39, with 27 more bunks for mission-specific personnel.

New Zealand Navy’s new diving support vessel starts journey from Norway


Photo: Royal New Zealand Navy

The Royal New Zealand Navy’s new diving and hydrographic support vessel has started her journey from Norway to Auckland, New Zealand.
Formerly known as offshore support vessel MV Edda Fonn, the vessel was sold by Norway’s Østensjø Rederi to the New Zealand Navy in August 2018.

The vessel was modified for navy needs and was repainted from a bright yellow to navy grey. Edda Fonn completed sea trials earlier this month before sailing to her new home.

Once in New Zealand, the vessel will be commissioned as HMNZS Manawanui and will undergo final modifications before entering service by November 2019.

The New Zealand Navy was initially scheduled to receive a custom, new-build vessel but an NZ$148 million cost blowout in the country’s frigate upgrade project forced the government to consider a used vessel.

Defense officials identified Edda Fonn as the most suitable option from an initial list of over 150 candidate offshore and subsea support vessels.
The vessel will be homeported in Gosborne and will replace the decommissioned dive tender HMNZS Manawanui and hydrographic survey ship HMNZS Resolution.

New Zealand Navy’s biggest vessel ready for launch in South Korea


Photo: Royal New Zealand Navy
The future HMNZS Aotearoa, the biggest ever vessel to be built for the Royal New Zealand Navy, is taking shape and is ready for launch in South Korea.

Aetorea is being constructed at Hyundai Heavy Shipbuilding’s Ulsan shipyard and is scheduled to be launched within the next two weeks, according to the New Zealand Navy.

The launch will take place some nine months after the tanker’s keel was laid in August 2018.
Aotearoa represents the first of a new fleet of RNZN ships built specifically to address the global requirements of the New Zealand Defence Force and government agencies for deployment from Antarctica to the Arabian Gulf.

HMNZS Aotearoa is designed to provide logistical support to New Zealand and coalition maritime, land and air units.
Her primary purpose is to conduct fuel resupply but she will also be capable of supplying dry goods, water, spare parts or ammunition. Her missions will include humanitarian and disaster relief, support to United Nations security operations, support to a coalition naval task group and Antarctic resupply.

Featuring a wave-piercing hull form, the 173.2-meter-long ship will have the ability to carry twelve 20-foot shipping containers, high-capacity freshwater generation plants, self-defense systems, aviation and marine fuel cargo tanks, dual all-electric replenishment-at-sea rigs and will be able to carry a Seaspite or NH90 helicopter.

Aotearoa will displace 26,000 tonnes and will be operated by a crew of 64.

The ship’s $493 million price tag includes the tanker’s enhanced “winterization” capabilities, such as ice-strengthening for operations in Antarctica, including resupplying McMurdo Station and Scott Base. Predecessor tanker HMNZS Endeavour was not Antarctic-capable.

South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) launched the Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN's) future fleet tanker/replenishment vessel at the company's dockyard in the southeastern coastal city of Ulsan on 24 April.

The 173 m-long auxiliary oiler replenishment (AOR) ship, which will be known as HMNZS Aotearoa once commissioned, was floated in the drydock at Ulsan in a ceremony attended by RNZN chief Rear Admiral David Proctor, among others.

Ordered for NZD493 million (USD323 million) in 2016 under New Zealand's Maritime Sustainment Capability (MSC) programme, the vessel was laid down in August 2018 and is expected to be delivered and commissioned in 2020 when it will replace fleet replenishment tanker Endeavour , which was decommissioned in December 2017.

The ship's home port will be New Plymouth in the country's western region of Taranaki.
Aotearoa , which will have twice the displacement of Endeavour and carry 30% more fuel, will be the largest vessel to be operated by the RNZN. It was designed to have a full-load displacement of 26,000 tonnes, an overall beam of 24.5 m, and a draught of 8.5 m.

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 12 standard 20 ft containers - four of which can contain dangerous goods - and of producing 100 tonnes of fresh water each day, according to the RNZN.

Aotearoa will be capable of embarking one SH-2G(NZ) Seasprite or NH90 medium utility helicopter, and will be equipped with self-defence systems, integrated communications and bridge systems, an integrated platform management system, and two NATO-compliant replenishment-at-sea (RAS) masts.

Enquanto Nações como a Nova Zelândia levam os assuntos da defesa muito a sério, por exemplo esta Nação possui uma frota com apenas onze navios mas, com uma média de idades de fazer inveja a muitas Nações, Portugal incluído, nós, por cá, continuamos a brincar com a defesa Nacional !!!

IMDEX Asia 2019: Vard Marine identifies design for possible Protector replacement

16th May 2019 - 08:10 GMT | by Richard Thomas in Singapore



Vard Marine is looking at putting options forward for any potential replacement of the Royal New Zealand Navy’s (RNZN) two Protector-class OPVs, which, although in service for less than ten years, are being tested by the environmental conditions encountered in the southern seas.

It is thought that a larger vessel than the 85m Protector class (pictured) would be required and better suited to the high seas and ice encountered in the Antarctic areas of operations.

The company has identified the Vard 7-110 platform, itself the basis of the US Coast Guard’s future Offshore Patrol Cutter, as potentially the design that would be put forward for any New Zealand programme.

[The Protector’s] are at their limit down [in the Antarctic],’ Dave McMillan, president of Vard Marine, told Shephard, adding that the vessels had were being ‘driven really hard’ in such testing conditions.

‘We have been looking at New Zealand in particular and have come up with a [design], we think it would be the [Vard] 7-110. We would like to think we can be involved with that programme,’ said McMillan.

He said that the RNZN was ‘still finalising requirements’ for a possible Protector replacement, but that there could be an increased emphasis on scientific equipment in the future design.

McMillan said that a decision on any replacement would have to be made in the next year or so, as new vessels would be needed in the 2022 timeframe.

The Protector class is smaller than the 109m-long 7-110 design. When in service with the USCG, the 7-110 based will have a speed of 24kt, range of 10,000nm and endurance of 60 days.

The future USCG OPC’s are being built by Eastern Shipbuilding Group in the US, with an expected delivery of the first cutter in 2021.
A New Zealand variant would see around 300t of fuel sacrificed to allow weight gain for the ice-strengthening of the hull.

Defence White Paper

The Defence White Paper was released by the New Zealand Government in June 2016.[1] Policy intentions regarding the replacement of existing ships are contained in the Defence White Paper and the 2016 Defence Capability Plan.[2] Plans out to 2030 include:

Short term - (Next 0-4 years):

Naval Combat Force: Anzac Self-Defence Upgrade: This project seeks to upgrade the Anzac frigates' self-defence systems to protect the Naval Combat Force against increasingly sophisticated anti-ship systems and to address equipment obsolescence. Lockheed Martin Canada (LMC) was awarded a contract on 29 April 2014 for the design and supply of the Combat Management System for each ANZAC Class Frigate along with the supply and integration of various sensors, missile system and a Combat System Trainer for the Devonport Naval Base in Auckland.[3] The RNZN plans to replace its RIM7P NATO Seasparrow missiles with the Sea Ceptor, active Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (Maritime) - CAMM(M).[4]

ANZAC Frigate Communications Upgrade

Close in Weapons System Upgrade

Naval Patrol Force: The acquisition of an ice strengthened Ocean Patrol Vessel in support of operations in the Southern Ocean and Antarctic. A detailed business case is expected in 2018.
Replacement of HMNZS Endeavour with an ice strengthened Tanker to support New Zealand's contribution to research in Antarctic. On 18 July 2016 the Minister of Defence announced that Hyundai Heavy Industries of South Korea had been awarded a contract for NZ$493,000,000 for the purchase of a new 23,000t tanker. The new tanker will be ice strengthened with winterisation features. The ship will be named HMNZS Aotearoa, and is due for delivery in 2020.[5][6]

Replacement of HMNZS Manawanui and HMNZS Resolution with a single Littoral Operations Support Vessel. It is expected that the vessel will also increase the range of operations the Defence Force can undertake independently in the South Pacific, and add depth to its maritime surveillance and sea transport capabilities. The vessel would also provide an additional deployment option for international coalition operations.[7] In May 2017 the Ministry of Defence advised Tenderers of a likely downgrade in the project. [8] On 13 December 2017 the Minister of Defence Ron Mark announced that due to cost blowouts with the ANZAC Self-Defence Upgrade a contemporary, off-the-shelf commercial dive and hydrographic vessel will be procured, rather than a more advanced, specifically designed military vessel. [9] On 27 March 2018 the Ministry of Defence publicly notified that the Littoral Warship Ship program had been closed. [10] The February 2018 edition of Navy Today noted that a decision on a replacement for Manawauni was likely in the short term, with the replacement commissioned by the end of 2018. [11][12]

Upgrades to Devonport Naval Base: Improvements to the ship loading area between 2017 and 2019.

Medium to Long Term

Begin initial planning for the replacement of the Anzac frigates with new combatant vessels. A detailed business case is expected by 2023.
The offshore patrol vessels HMNZS Wellington and HMNZS Otago, to be modernised through a midlife upgrade. Estimated business case expected in 2023.
The logistics support ship HMNZS Canterbury to be equipped with new landing craft and modernised through a midlife upgrade. Estimated business case expected in 2021.
Upgrades to Devonport Naval Base: The proposal includes improvements to the dockyard workshops between 2021 and 2024, extending Calliope Wharf between 2022 and 2025 and waterside operations and offices between 2023 and 2025. Upgrade of Naval Base Accommodation and offices spaces are also planned.

Torpedo Replacement

Other proposals

Phasing out of the inshore patrol craft. The December 2017 Navy Today at Page 16 announced that the navy was bringing all 4 IPV into service[13]. Two of the IPV had been kept at extended notice / in reserve for a number of years.
