Government To Buy $500m Ship


The government has to buy a $493 million naval tanker. The ship will be custom made for use in the Antarctica and will replace the 30 year old HMNZS Endeavour. The new ship will be used to refuel naval vessels and helicopters at sea and to supply fuel and fresh water. The new vessel will be built by the South Corine company Hyundai heavy industries and was expected for delivery in 2020. The replacement tanker will be much larger than HMNZS Endeabour and will be due to retire in 2018.
