Two companies have been shortlisted to build a new Antarctic icebreaker as part of the largest investment in Antarctica in Australian history.

DMS Maritime Pty Ltd and P&O Maritime Services Pty Ltd have been chosen to provide a prequalified Request for Tender to replace the aging Aurora Australis.

The two companies have been selected following a Request for Proposal process last year. The next phase of the procurement is to undertake the detailed Request for Tender.
