HMAS Success conducts RAS exercise

US Navy receives delivery of newest littoral combat ship"

Modern naval vessels depend on a strong support network during operations, and that's why dedicated ships are often on hand to ensure fuel needs can be met.

At exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC), a variety of operations are undertaken in order to test the skills of maritime forces.

HMAS Success, an auxiliary vessel, has recently conducted a Replenishment at Sea (RAS) off the coast of Hawaii, refuelling Canadian ship Calgary and US ships Lake Champlain, Spruance and Sampson. For the first time in six years, Success performed a dual replenishment with the Lake Champlain and Sampson, where two vessels are refuelled simultaneously.

Captain Allison Norris, the Commanding Officer of HMAS Success, noted the benefits of such an exercise for the vessel.

"This is an amazing opportunity for Success to demonstrate her replenishment and logistic capabilities within this multi-asset environment."

The refuelling exercise required two separate teams on hand throughout the process, while small boat and helicopter evolutions were also conducted. As the three ships were linked during the exercise, bridge crews needed to be constantly aware of ship positions.

"The four hour evolution took a lot of concentration at the helm and it gave me a real sense of achievement at the end," said Chief Petty Officer Raechelle Henderson​, the Success's chief coxswain.

The Success is to remain in Hawaii until the end of RIMPAC at the end of July. The exercises conducted should ensure the vessel is able to capably support Australian ships over the next few years.
