Garden Island, ADV Ocean Shield

The Australian Defence Vessel (ADV) Ocean Shield is an Offshore Support Vessel which is usually moored at the Garden Island dockyards, in the eastern suburb of Potts Point. The ship was built for a Norwegian shipping company and originally named MVS Skandi Bergen. During construction, the vessel was sold to the Royal Australian Navy. It began naval service on 30 June 2012, when it was renamed Ocean Shield.


  1. Who or what does this Offshore Support Vessel support?
    I hope they don't want to sneak up on Japanese whalers etc unnoticed... the red is VERY bright.

    1. The Navy, I suppose but I do agree. It's not very subtle.

  2. Beautiful red colour... lovely water reflection...

  3. Quite the ship ~ great shot for SWF ~ ^_^ ~ thanks.
