Success meets success
CMDR Jon Metzl
THE ship's company and CO HMAS Success have
proudly declared the "battle tanker is back" after she
completed her first replenishment at sea since 2010.
In sea state four under overcast conditions on July 5,
CO Success CMDR Ainsley Morthorpe led a series
of replenishments with HMAS Newcastle in the East
Australian Exercise Area.
With assistance from Fleet Engineering and Sea
Training Group, Success is now compliant with the
Inter national Maritime Organisation's r ules for double-
hull tankers and has commenced the work-up process
following an extended period of maintenance that began
in July 2011.
Despite poor weather conditions, the replenishment
was conducted safely and marks the achievement of
a significant milestone for the ship and Fleet, as she
returns to operations.
The next few months will see the team in Success
hone its skills through a graduated reconstitution period.
In addition to replenishment, the team will focus on
reinvigorating core mariner skills and training future
engine watch-keepers and officers of the watch with
auxiliary oiler replenishment endorsements.
CMDR Morthorpe said the ship's company should
be proud to have had their ship declared safe to return
"I am proud of the crew's achievements to date,
especially its resilience, enthusiasm and motivation,
which is most rewarding to me and my command team,"
"We also wish to acknowledge the outstand-
ing achievements of the various supporting agencies,
including unifor med person nel, Defence civilians and
Australian industry who all worked so hard to allow us
to sail on time."
