Naval contracts

Techport Australia - Australia’s premier naval industry hub, is home to some of Australia’s largest and most complex naval projects.

Collins Class Submarines

Between 1987 and 2003, ASC designed and built the Royal Australian Navy’s current fleet of Collins Class submarines. In 2003, ASC signed a multi-billion dollar, 25-year through-life-support contract for these submarines. A team of around 900 people now work on the maintenance and enhancement of the submarines.

ASC is also the shipbuilder for the $8 billion next generation Air Warfare Destroyers. In its new $120 million shipyard at Techport Australia, ASC will fabricate, assemble, test and develop a through-life-support system for the Hobart Class AWDs. The three vessels, to be introduced into service from 2014, will provide a major leap in the Navy’s air warfare capabilities.
