The Pacific Egret, delivered in 2010, is an INF 3 certified vessel under the INF Code of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

This vessel is the second of the new generation of PNTL vessels and, like the Pacific Heron, its design builds on the experience of operating purpose-built nuclear carriers since 1979. The Pacific Egret has security features that enable it to transport MOX fuel and plutonium dioxide. The vessel is fitted with fixed naval guns and has other additional physical protection systems, only some of which are visible from the outside.
