Arrow INDOPACIFIC 2022: BMT proposes the multi-role logistics ship ELLIDA for the Australia

INDOPACIFIC 2022: BMT proposes the multi-role logistics ship ELLIDA for the Australian Navy's new project
By: Naval Recognition News - 05-10-22

According to a PR published by BMT on May 10, 2022, the leading international multi-disciplinary engineering and ship design consultancy, will offer an updated concept design from its ELLIDA™ multi-role logistics ship design family for the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN) Joint Support Ship project, SEA2200.

The ELLIDA™ family of concept designs, launched in 2019, builds on the experience of other BMT-designed vessels in-service in the auxiliary market.

The modifications to the eventual RAN requirements will take advantage of the concepts having been designed with the flexibility to allow them to adapt to differing customer mission requirements.

This is combined with BMT’s proven track record in developing specific solutions for naval customers. The design includes a ro-ro cargo capability, cargo stores, and provision to allow replenishment at sea for fuel and dry stores, with a well dock to support amphibious operations.

ELLIDA™ has the utility to transport and deliver troops, vehicles, equipment, and supplies to and from anywhere in the world in support of amphibious warfare and littoral operations, offering a versatile mix of ship-to-shore offloading and logistics capabilities to allow naval operations through landing craft, boat operations, multi-spot aviation and replenishment at sea.

The center of the ship has two extensive decks with flexible space for either vehicles, containers or equipment, ensuring the vessel has the flexibility to adapt to differing mission requirements.

Primarily a logistics ship with considerable capacity to carry solid stores and flexible options for loading, transferring or unloading, ELLIDA™ has been designed to provide strategic logistic transportation of rolling cargo, vehicles, troops, and freight between operational areas to deliver support to amphibious operations using landing craft and helicopters.

Also designed to operate as a humanitarian disaster response vessel, the design is flexible to allow the addition of enhanced medical and/or Replenishment at Sea facilities.

The ELLIDA™ multi-role logistics ship is the third in the family of vessels designed by BMT for the auxiliary market, complimenting the AEGIR family already in service with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the Royal Norwegian Navy and SALVAS concept.

In developing the ELLIDA™ design, BMT applied the knowledge gleaned through the development of operational concepts against current and future doctrines of several navies.

The concept is designed to be able to react to the dynamic functional requirements of military commanders in support of government policy for several different nations.
Personal note: Whole lot of new naval vessels coming out - up to date - state-of-the-art
Let's hope they all do as well as their advertising - when called into action!

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
