Naval Group at the Pacific 2019 International Maritime Exposition in Sydney

Naval Group attended this year’s Pacific 2019 International Maritime Exposition in Sydney to showcase how Naval Group is delivering for Australia, now and into the future.

Naval Group is a naval systems provider and integrator, one of the few companies in the world with the ability to deliver complete warships with their combat systems and all the critical equipment necessary to engage naval power in a theatre of operations. It is involved at every stage in the product life cycle, from design to in-service support.

Naval Group teams was on site to provide attendees with an update on the largest defence contract in Australia’s history, the Attack Class submarine program and how it will transform Australia, providing opportunities for every state and territory.

As part of their commitment to building a stronger Australian defence industry, the Department of Defence, Naval Group and Lockheed Martin Australia hosted a Future Submarine industry briefing on Wednesday, 9 October. Over 700 attendees registered to attend the briefing, where they were provided with an update on The Future Submarine Program as well as a detailed overview of upcoming procurement activities and how to get involved.

They also heard for the first time from The Program’s Tier 1 suppliers, including MTU and Penske Power Systems (awarded the contract for the design of the diesel generator rectifiers) and Schneider Electric France and Schneider Electric Australia (awarded the contract for the procurement of the Main Direct Current switchboards).

Attendees also got to view a virtual mock-up fly-through of the Attack Class Submarine Construction Yard, being built at Osborne, Adelaide. The yard will be located on approximately 40 hectares of land and contain all the necessary buildings and equipment to support the construction of three submarines at various stages of completion.

A series of collaboration announcements were also made with their Australian naval shipbuilding industry partners during PACIFIC 2019.

During Pacific, Naval Group also presented the Belharra®, the answer to navies looking for a compact frigate to perform a large range of missions. Her original design features consider the fast pace of change of information technology and the ongoing need for technical upgrades. It is also the first frigate to include architecture and systems to counter next-generation threats, such as cyber and asymmetrical warfare.

Finally, Naval Group and its partner ECA Group showcased their joint solution for stand-off Mines Counter Measures (MCM) selected by Belgium and the Netherlands. Members of the media were invited to a dedicated presentation on Thursday 10th on the Naval Group booth.
