Selah Shipyard has won the tender in 2014. The construction of the first ship has started in 2015 and was scheduled for commissioning originally in 2017. The second ship was launched on 8 July 2017.

The ships will carry 4000 tons of fuel for warships, 500 tons of fuel for helicopters and 330 tons of fresh water. Furthermore, there is a place for 8 standard ISO containers. They will have a medical facility, capable of performing surgeries. These ships will not have a helicopter hangar but will have a large landing pad, suitable for heavy army helicopters.
