Replacement Replenishment Vessels
The Government has signed contracts with Navantia S.A. to build Australia’s two replacement replenishment ships, avoiding a critical capability gap.
Australia’s current supply ship HMAS Success will reach its end of life in 2021 and needs to be replaced as a matter of priority.
As part of the $640 million contract with Navantia more than $130 million will go to Australian industry.
Local industry activity will include Combat and Communication Systems integration, Integrated Logistics Support, and elements of the onboard cranes.
