HMAS Success OR304
HMAS Success OR304
HMAS SUCCESS, based on the French 'Durance' Class Ship was built in Australia by Cockatoo Dockyard Pty Ltd at Sydney, New South Wales. She was launched from their slipway on 03 March 1984 by her launching Lady, Her Excellency Lady Stephen, wife of the then Governor General of Australia and commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy on 23 April 1986. She is the largest ship built in Australia for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) and also the largest ever built in the port of Sydney. HMAS SUCCESS is an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) vessel of 18,000 tonne fully loaded and 157.2 metres in length. She is not the first ship to be named SUCCESS. In all, 19 British men-of-war ships are known to have carried the name, most during the 17th and 18th centuries.

HMAS SUCCESS is designed for this task. She is capable of day and night Replenishment at Sea (RAS) to ships alongside and concurrently by her embarked helicopter to other ships in company via Vertical Replenishment (VERTREP). Four main RAS stations are fitted, two of which have dual functions and can be used to transfer either fuel or solid cargo. RAS operations are controlled from the Cargo Control Room amidships. During solid cargo transfer a traveller riding on a tension highline between SUCCESS and a fixed point in the receiving ship supports the load. During fuel transfers, the highline is used to support a hose which hangs from several travelling saddles and which has a quick connecting probe to mate with the fuel receiving point in the ship being fuelled. The solid cargo transfer stations are designed to handle sizeable loads of up to nearly 2 tonnes. All winches use hydraulic transmissions with electro hydraulic controls. The RAS system is designed to cope with the extreme demands caused by ship motion in rough weather and varying sea states. HMAS SUCCESS thus enables RAN fleet units to operate with a greater degree of flexibility and independence from shore support than has previously been possible from other RAN sources. The Ship's Company of 220 is required to operate and maintain the propulsion, replenishment, auxiliary machinery and support systems in SUCCESS. Providing underway replenishment support to the fleet is a challenging and continuing task requiring technical proficiency and high seamanship standards. As would be expected in a modern warship, accommodation and recreation areas are spacious and well designed. Meals are provided from one centralised galley that includes a bakery. The medical centre includes an operating theatre, infirmary and dental surgery. The Westland Sea King helicopter is an USA design but produced by Westland Helicopters in the UK. It is powered by two Rolls Royce Gnome H1400-1 engines, each producing 1600 shaft horsepower. It is crewed by two pilots, one observer (tactical coordinator) and one aircrewman. The primary role of the Sea King is to provide support to the Fleet as a utility aircraft. It is also capable of carrying a weapon load of homing torpedoes and/or depth charges. Other roles include Search and Rescue, logistics support and training. A Sea King can lift 3 tonnes externally and can carry up to 23 armed troops. The versatility and reliability of this aircraft enables the crew to confidently carry out their mission in any weather conditions, day or night, thus making it a valuable asset to the RAN. THE FIRST HMAS SUCCESS The first HMAS SUCCESS (H02) was an S Class DD built by Wm Doxford & Son Ltd., Sunderland UK. She was laid down on the 29 June 1918, launched 27 January 1920 and decommissioned 21 May 1931. She was eventually sold on 04 June 1937. HMAS SUCCESS I was 276ft in length with a beam of 26ft 9ins and a draft of 10ft 10ins. Her displacement was 1075 tons and had a speed of 36kts. HMAS SUCCESS I armament consisted of three 4 inch Mk IV BL; one 2 pounder Qf; one .303 inch Maxim MG; two .303 inch Lewis MG; one twin .303 inch Lewis MG; two twin 21 inch Mk IV TT; two DC trowers and four DC chutes. Originally built for the Royal Navy, she was to be renamed RABAUL by the RAN but this was rescinded on 11 June 1920 and the original name of SUCCESS was retained.
