Austal announced that it has delivered RNOV Al Mubshir to the Royal Navy of Oman.

The RNOV Al Mubshir is the first of two 72-metre High Speed Support Vessels (HSSVs) to be delivered to the Royal Navy of Oman under a US$124.9 million design, construct and integrated logistics support contract.

Austal commenced construction of the HSSVs in August 2014 at its Henderson, Western Australia shipyard, with the second HSSV scheduled to be delivered later in CY2016, in line with the contract. 

The HSSV offers a range of capabilities to support naval operations, including helicopter operations, rapid deployment of military personnel and cargo, and search and rescue operations. The vessels are expected to be deployed with a similar mission to the U.S. Navy’s Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) program.

Austal Chief Executive Officer David Singleton said, “Construction of the second HSSV is progressing well and on track for delivery to the Royal Navy of Oman later this year.
