Future Frigate contract announced
The Commonwealth has signed a major contract to secure the supply chain for the Hunter Class frigate build
In a major development for Australia’s $35 billion Hunter Class frigate program, an interim contract has been struck between the Commonwealth and BAE Systems Australia.
Minister for Defence Christopher Pyne today announced Defence and BAE Systems Australia have entered into an Advanced Work Arrangement (AWA).
The AWA will cover ongoing work on the $35 billion program, ahead of agreeing the head contract.
Minister Pyne said the AWA is an important first step in the process of transitioning ASC Shipbuilding into BAE Systems in preparation for the nation’s biggest shipbuilding program.
MACRO Recruitment’s MD said that “This announcement means more certainty for Australian businesses investing in staff and training to support Defence. MACRO Recruitment anticipates a high need for boilermakers across Perth and South Australia as this project ramps up”
