I couldn't find the exact article, but I did find another Dutch article on the same subject and below is the Google Translation:

   Combat support ship / supply ship Den Helder
By: Jaime Karremann  Last edited: 23-11-2018

    The Combat Support Ship (CSS), either supply ship or tanker, will in the future have to supply naval vessels of, among others, the Dutch fleet with fuel, spare parts and ammunition. In 2017 it was announced that this capacity will be added to the fleet. The ship must be put into service in 2023 and will be Zr.Ms. Go to Den Helder.

    Go directly to specifications (at the bottom of this page).

    CSS Den Helder

    Tasks
    A supply ship has the task of supplying naval vessels at sea. This concerns fuel for ships and helicopters / aircraft, spare parts, ammunition and victories (food and drink). Thanks to a supplier, ships can stay at sea for a longer period of time, and are therefore also more flexible in the event of a suddenly changing assignment. A supplier can sail along in a context and then supply the ships during a large voyage (when the Dutch navy made far-away squadron trips, a supplier often went along and the Chinese navy ships that now call in Europe often also have a supply ship with them).

    Another possibility is that, for example, frigates patrol during a sea blockade in a certain delimited area. The tanker can then commute between the ports and the frigates with fresh food, fuel, etc. without the frigates having to leave their 'box'.

    In addition to supplying, combat support ships can also perform other logistical tasks. For example, transporting material or acting as a floating hospital. Of course they can also be used for more general marine tasks. The Zuiderkruis and Amsterdam have done anti-piracy and drug control. Nevertheless, the emphasis in the CSS is on supply tasks.

    LSV Damen
    The Logistics Support Vessel (LSV) from Damen forms the basis for the new supply ship, where the cutlery of the Karel Doorman is fitted. (Photo: Damen)

    Robust, simple, reliable
    Despite the name combat support ship, it is a supply ship such as the Amsterdam, Zuiderkruis and Pole Star. Project leader Paul de Leeuw said about this in an interview: 'That is also the wish of Admiral Kramer (Commander of the Royal Netherlands Navy, JK). He wants a robust, simple, reliable and sustainable ship. No hassle. But the Amsterdam was a single-hit ship This new ship must be able to cash in and slap a blow, and that is also the case with the Doorman When the ship was designed, they said we must build a real warship, including redundancy and duplication in systems. C.S.S.'

From a distant past: beer at sea.

    Based on design Damen plus Karel Doorman
    There is little time to get the ship up and running, therefore an existing design is chosen as the starting point. After the requirements and the 'further specifications of requirements' (staff requirements) were completed in the spring of 2018, the specifications were worked on. The cutlery that was used was the cutlery from the Karel Doorman, but that had to be adjusted to the wishes of the CSS and had to fit within the LSV design. The LSV is a design by Damen that the company had offered to Norway.

    Not only did the JSS specifications have to be adjusted, the design of the LSV also underwent considerable changes. One of the changes is the size. The LSV was approximately 166 to 170 meters long, the CSS at the end of 2018 was exactly 179.5 meters. This was mainly due to the requirement that the amount of fuel that the ship must be able to deliver is equal to the capacity of the Doorman. Furthermore, the bow has changed, it has become a lot straighter to save fuel.

    The tanker will have a displacement of approximately 20,000 tons. This may seem substantial, but a small tanker was deliberately not chosen (comparable to, for example, small German tankers) because those tankers are often intended for small ships and short operating periods. The new tanker must be able to support a task group of six ships, even in bad weather, and that is only possible with a larger ship. Because the tanker must be double-walled due to new regulations and modern requirements regarding ammunition storage, the volume has also increased.

    The supply ship will have combined loading positions on starboard, port and rear, a large crane and space for 20 containers. The crew will consist of 75 m / v, there are 160 beds on board.

    The ship will be built in Romania by Damen.  There may be cooperation with Germany.

IMPROVED EFFICIENCY FOR NEW COMBAT SUPPORT SHIP
Seven per cent efficiency gain

The ship will be equipped with Wärtsilä diesel generator sets (Tier) to deliver 15.8 megawatts installed power.  Electric propulsion motors and two fixed pitch propellers allow for a maximum speed of 19 knots.

I think that makes it a bit more readable.

That's good to hear.  Last I heard they were barely serviceable due to lack of parts.  They worked but if something broke, well it might very well have stayed broke.

So we went from this.(design 2019)

1-multi mission Bay gone

2-Rhibs 7 mtrs instead of 12 mtrs Frisc

3-No possibillity to increase the number of VLS cells.

Although  If you need extra VLS, you can also choose to place the Adaptable Deck Launcher on the hangar.

To This;(final design 24/06/20)

133 mtrs,5500 tonns ASW frigate(replacement M-class)

This is what certain to be on the ship:

This is what's set about systems on board(a lot is unknown)

A few systems are certain. Zuiddam: "ESSM Block 2 is simply in the order. So there will be a VLS [vertical launcher, ] and you have to control that chain. You do that with sensors based on AWWS, which are now being developed with the latest techniques and latest Threat Scenarios. The same system will be deployed on the German MKS 180 frigates, including APAR Block 2. " This makes the new frigates a big step forward compared to the M frigates, which do not have such an advanced radar as APAR. This is therefore the successor of the APAR on the LCFs.

At the heart of the ship is a renewed LFAPS, Low Frequency Active Passive Sonar. A sonar that can ping submarines at low frequencies. Because it is left behind in the water, it is also possible to search under temperature layers. Thanks to the low frequency, submarines can be detected very well. The LFAPS is a largely Dutch development, for which there is very much interest from other countries. However, the Netherlands does not want to share that knowledge with many countries.

Rob Zuiddam is projectleader "replacement M-Class"

Also it seems that there will be a 16 cells Vls,that's the number i keep hearing.

Price is to be around the 500 million Euros mark.

And this is also interesting:

International interest
And maybe there will be more than four. Because there is certainly one seriously interested "from Europe" to participate. De Waard and Zuiddam cannot say which country it concerns. "It is not public," says Zuiddam. "But a formal letter has been sent by that country. So we have to wait a while, although it can be completed within six months."

It is not new that there is interest from abroad in the replacement of the M-frigates. However, the interest is so concrete. Countries such as Portugal (which is very satisfied with the M-frigates and the current modernization) and Norway (which had ideas to replace the sunken frigate Helge Ingstad with two new frigates) have been mentioned for some time.

If three European countries purchase the same new frigates, this is very good news for the project and a special event in the history of European frigate construction

If this would happen,more countries bying the vMFF,a Batch 2 is possible(maybe replace the Hollands for 2 more of these "puppies" and 2 smaller patrol vessels,like the Stan Patrol 5509)

1 step closer to our new MCM vessels;

Belgian-Dutch Mine Counter Measure (MCM) Program Achieves New Milestone

On May 23, a new contractual milestone was reached as part of the Belgian-Dutch Mine Counter Measure (MCM) program: Exactly one year after notification of the contract in 2019, the program successfully passed the "Systems Functional Review" phase.

In the midst of the COVID-19 health crisis, the teams of Belgium Naval & Robotics and of the binational defense project have reached a new milestone: “Systems Functional Review”. This evaluation makes it possible to validate the functional and architectural studies of all the systems of MCM vessels developed by Naval Group such as computer networks, electrical installations, propulsion systems or combat systems, as well as those of all unmanned systems developed by ECA Group. This review also focused on the system of systems that provides mission management, communications and cybersecurity, as well as on the integration of the unmanned systems aboard the ship.

“This milestone represents an important step because it demonstrates that the systems architecture of the armed ship meets the functional requirements of our Belgian and Dutch customers,”

Eric Perrot, MCM program director at Naval Group.


“The requirement and the rigor of the client when passing these milestones are essential; we can thus approach the next phases of the program in good conditions”

Jean-Louis Sambarino, MCM program director at ECA Group.


“The COVID-19 challenge was resolutely taken up and mastered by Belgium Naval & Robotics and our binational project team. The flexibility, diligence and professionalism of both parties were the ingredients necessary for the success of this important step in the contractual deadlines. The constructive atmosphere and expertise of Belgium Naval & Robotics inspires confidence in the prospect of the next milestone this fall. “

Commander Claude Bultot, program director for the Belgian and Dutch navies


Next phase: Preliminary Design Review

In charge of the preliminary design of the ships, Naval Group works in close collaboration with Kership who will carry out the detailed design of the ships and their construction. Kership’s activities will start after passing the Preliminary Design Review milestone, which is scheduled for December 2020.

The contract for twelve MCM vessels for the Belgian and Dutch navies will span over ten years. After a design period of three years, Belgium Naval & Robotics will move on to the production phase of these ships and unmanned systems, with an initial delivery scheduled for 2024. Six ships will be delivered to the Belgian navy and six to the Dutch navy ; They will be equipped with complete drone systems (Toolbox) containing a total of more than a hundred underwater, surface and aerial drones entirely dedicated to mine hunting.

Dutch JSS Karel Doorman Set Sails To The Caribbean For COVID-19 Relief Mission

The Royal Netherlands Navy's HNLMS Karel Doorman set sails for the Caribbean this morning. The Joint Logistic Support Ship (JSS) has been tasked by the Dutch Ministry of Defense to support civilian authorities in fighting the COVID-19 if the situation calls for it.

https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/2020/04/dutch-jss-karel-doorman-set-sails-to-the-caribbean-for-covid-19-relief-mission/

Quote
The JSS vessel departed Den Helder naval base for an initial period of 3 months. As soon as it reaches the Caribbean waters, the Dutch islands located there will be able to rely on a versatile and quickly deployable capacity. For example, Karel Doorman can assist with logistics support so that the islanders receive food. In addition, the vessel can support the coastguard with maritime border surveillance if desired. The vessel can also serve as a base. For example, landing personnel and equipment quickly to support the local authorities in maintaining public order. The Karel Doorman also has medical facilities to support the local health care in non-COVID-related emergency care.

2 Cougar transport helicopters are deployed aboard the JSS. They may be used for medical transport and medical evacuations. The ship also deployed with medical teams: 1 with surgical capacity, the other for basic shore care. Drones from the army and navy may provide situation assessment in the area. Marine units are part of this deployment, along with their vehicles and landing craft, providing a transport capacity in the area. If necessary, an additional marines unit may be flown in. The ship even has a hurricane emergency kit with it.

DAMEN AND ROHDE & SCHWARZ HELP TO STRENGTHEN THE ROYAL NETHERLANDS NAVY’S MARITIME REPLENISHMENT CAPACITY

Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding signed a contract with Rohde & Schwarz for the delivery and installation of internal and external communication systems for the Royal Netherlands Navy’s Combat Support Ship, Den Helder.

The Royal Netherlands Navy’s (RNLN) new Combat Support Ship (CSS), Den Helder, to be built by Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS), will strengthen the navy’s replenishment capacity at sea. Delivery of the ship is scheduled for the second quarter of 2024.

DSNS signed a contract with Rohde & Schwarz Benelux B.V. for the delivery and installation of a state-of-the-art integrated communications system for the RNLN’s CSS, Den Helder.

With the contract, the RNLN will receive a system based on proven technology and standardized to provide commonality across the Dutch naval fleet. For more than 20 years, the RNLN has been using Rohde & Schwarz communications systems on their vessels with high level reliability and performance during daily operations. This commonality offers not only crew familiarity, but also optimizes training, maintenance and many other processes.

Arjan Risseeuw, Project Director of the CSS at DSNS states: “Rohde & Schwarz have a good track record in delivering their equipment to Royal Netherlands Navy vessels. We have collaborated with them before, on the Joint Support Ship HNLMS Karel Doorman, for which the Defence Materiel Organisation acted as intermediary for the Rohde & Schwarz equipment it purchased. I am looking forward to working directly with Rohde & Schwarz on this project in order to provide the CSS with a good communication suite.”

Mischa van Santen, Sales Manager at Rohde & Schwarz Benelux states: “Rohde & Schwarz Benelux will act as the communications system integrator for DSNS. Our local engineering team at Utrecht will make sure that we deliver according schedule and budget as well as that the system is supported through life by our Dutch personnel. Rohde & Schwarz Benelux currently also executes work together with Damen Shipyards in Den Helder for the current refit programs of the RNLN support ship, HNLMS Pelikaan, as well as the Hydrographic vessels, HNLMS Snellius and HNLMS Luymes.”

For the CSS Rohde & Schwarz will supply a fully integrated communications system, including R&S M3SR software defined radios (R&S Series4100 HF and R&S Series4400 VHF/UHF).
