Good News for New Zealand Shipbuilders


Whangarei's shipbuilding industry is braced for a major boost after Australian firm Tenix was announced the preferred bidder for a $500 million government contract to build new naval ships. Project Protector will provide New Zealand's Navy and civilian agencies with a multi-role vessel, capable of undertaking such tasks as tactical sealift and disaster relief in the Pacific, and patrol functions. The final details of the project are still being worked out, including exactly how much of the work would be done in Whangarei.

The project is expected to include two 35m inshore patrol ships, two 85m offshore patrol ships and a 130m multi-role ship. The New Zealand Defence Ministry said it would now start negotiations with Tenix before final confirmation. It was said that Tenix Defence had been chosen as the preferred tenderer for the contract, with Damen Schelde ADI as second preference to provide the multi-role ship. All the ships bought under the Project Protector contract would be designed and purpose-built to meet the specific New Zealand’s Navy needs.
