For your reference, the Southern Ocean Patrol Vessel presentation delivered at the PACIFIC 2019 International Maritime Exposition in Sydney on the 09 October 2019 is now available for download from the New Zealand Ministry of Defence website. The presentation overviews New Zealand's maritime patrol requirements, summarise some of the technical considerations for operating in the Southern Ocean, and advises the indicative timings for the project.

The project aims to deliver to the Royal New Zealand Navy a capability that will enable it to undertake whole-of-Government tasking within the Southern Ocean and Ross Sea areas and conduct patrols across a wider range of ice conditions than is possible with the current naval patrol fleet. Any new vessel must meet regulatory requirements under the International Polar Code, allowing New Zealand to operate with reduced risk to sensitive environments and ecosystems, and meet expectations in relation to safety of life.
