In early-May 2020, AAD (Australian Antarctic Division) announced that the icebreaking ship's sea trials have been delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Vessel's construction (at Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania) started in May 2017, and its float out (from drydock) was in September 2018.
Due to the vessel's delayed delivery, for summer 2021 season, AAD chartered MPV Everest (2017-built Offshore Construction Vessel) to resupply Australia's Antarctic bases and Macquarie Island. The ship charter deal was for at least 90 days.
MPV Everest (IMO number 9769130) is an ice-class multi-purpose ship operated by the Dutch company MCS (Maritime Construction Services BV). The contracted ship has max icebreaking capacity 1 m (3 ft), LOA length 140 m (459 ft), max passenger capacity 100, max cargo capacity 96 TEU-containers (on outer decks), a helipad (positioned above the Wheelhouse).
