Maritime sustainment

Investing in Australia's future
With an annual contribution of $1.2 billion to Australia's GDP, take a closer look at one of our 200 programs supporting Australia's defence. 
HMAS Arunta mast lift at Henderson.
HMAS Arunta’s new mast has been installed as part of the ship’s Mid Life Capability Assurance Program (AMCAP) being undertaken at our Henderson facility in Western Australia.

The new mast was manufactured by BAE Systems at Henderson as part of the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) between BAE Systems, SAAB Australia, Naval Ship Management (NSM) and the Commonwealth of Australia.

Around 2.4 million hours will be required to undertake the AMCAP upgrades to Australia’s eight ANZAC class frigates. Four hundred of our people, with the support of some 250 from other companies, are currently working on the upgrade to the ANZAC frigate fleet. This important ANZAC Midlife Capability upgrade program has underpinned the growth of our facility at Henderson.

We are proud to support the Royal Australian Navy with the sustainment of FFG, LHD, DDG as well as ANZAC ships. Our maritime sustainment team of some 1,000 people stretches right across the country, from Henderson to Garden Island in New South Wales, from Williamstown, Victoria to Cairns in Queensland.
