Show close time for other time zones
The Naval Construction Branch (NCB) has been established to become the Australian centre of excellence of naval ship building expertise, the manager of naval ship building infrastructure, and to provide onsite oversight of ship construction activity on behalf of ship / submarine programs and the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The NCB currently has a dual role in that it is also responsible for the Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) Program, where the Hobart Class Guided Missile Destroyers (DDGs) represent a significant increase in the air warfare capabilities of the Australian Defence Force.
The AWD Program is one of the largest and most complex Defence projects in Australian history and will provide the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) with one of the world's most advanced multi-mission warships. The DDGs comprise three ships; that is, HMAS Hobart (commissioned September 2017), HMAS Brisbane (commissioned October 2018), and NUSHIP Sydney (scheduled to be commissioned in early 2020).
The NCB intends to establish and implement contracts with reliable and capable suppliers for the procurement of goods and / or services to support the DDGs’ sustainment and maintenance. The Contracts will also be made available to other RAN organisations which may have a need to procure services under this arrangement.
