RSV Nuyina Australias New Icebreaking Research and Supply Vessel

Australia will soon take delivery of an extraordinary new icebreaker vessel to support our Antarctic Program. The multi-role RSV Nuyina, which will replace Aurora Australis, will deliver significantly-increased ship performance, cargo logistics and marine science support facilities over her much-loved but ageing predecessor.

In this presentation, our guest speaker will summarise the design, construction and testing process so far and discuss some of the challenges faced along the way.
