Photos: Hull of Australian Icebreaker Under Construction

The hull of Australia’s new Antarctic icebreaker RSV Nuyina is rapidly taking shape in Damen's Romanian shipyard. Some of the key components of the ship are currently being welded and fitted as the hull nears completion. Once the hull is complete, the dry dock will be filled with water to allow the ship to be floated out to a larger wet dock, where construction of the superstructure will begin. Nuyina is due for delivery in 2020.
