The Southern Ocean is tough, placing extreme loads on our Offshore Patrol Vessels. Learn about the ship dynamic analysis undertaken by the defence Technology Agency and Marico Marine NZ and the implications of this anaylsis for operations in the Southern Ocean.

The Southern Ocean is the toughest ocean. It presents real challenges to the ships serving our nation in the world’s harshest conditions, these challenges include; freezing temperatures, the presence of sea ice, extreme waves, winds and sea states.

This presentation outlines the work completed by the Defence Technology Agency and Marico Marine NZ to analyse the ship dynamics of the Royal New Zealand Navy Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV).  This analysis was then used to evaluate whether the coverage of the hull’s ice-strengthening is sufficient for various sea conditions. Finally, the implications for OPV operations in the Southern Ocean are discussed.     

The presentation is free but registration is essential.
