Success docks in Albany
The largest ship built in Australia for the Royal Australian Navy has dropped anchor in Albany this morning.
The HMAS Success will be berthed at the port until Monday.
The Advertiser understands the 157m vessel is on rest and recuperation, as part of its participation in an exercise off the west coast of Australia.
Southern Ports Authority Harbour Master Captain Gary Wilson said they are thrilled to host the vessel.
“We are always happy to host naval vessels at Southern Ports,” he said.
“Albany and Bunbury are due to host the HMAS Melbourne in the next week.”
The HMAS Success is an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment vessel which can weigh up to 18,000 tonne when fully loaded.
