Navantia has launched the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN's) new auxiliary oiler replenishment (AOR) vessel Nuship Supply at its shipyard in Ferrol, Spain.

Supply is the first of two AOR ships Navantia is building for the RAN under a contract signed in 2016.

The two ships are based on the Spanish Navy's Cantabria design, tailored to fulfil specific Australian standards and requirements.

The agreement with Australia also includes the sustainment of the two AOR ships for a period of five years. All sustainment activities will be performed in Western Australia and New South Wales by Navantia Australia and its subcontractors.
