New Zealand approves replenishment tanker replacement

17 July 2014

The New Zealand government has given approval for the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) to seek a replacement for the Royal New Zealand Navy's fleet replenishment tanker HMNZS Endeavour .

A request for tender is expected to be issued by the Ministry of Defence in early 2015. Following evaluation of bids, a final recommendation will be made to cabinet in mid-2016.

Built by Hyundai Heavy Industries and commissioned in April 1988, Endeavour will reach the end of its service life in 2018. Maintenance costs are increasing, and the vessel will face non-compliance issues with new international maritime regulations.

The NZDF has been studying options for some time for a projected Maritime Projection and Sustainment Capability to replace Endeavour .
