The Defence Materiel Organisation announced it has signed a multi-million dollar contract with Thales Australia for the scheduled repair and maintenance of HMAS Newcastle.

The contract is worth approximately $8.7M and is anticipated to engage in the order of 100 Thales personnel with further support from subcontractors.

This is further evidence of Defence’s commitment to ensuring the on-going repair and maintenance of Navy ships occurs in Australia.

As previously stated, Defence has budgeted to spend approximately $79M on ship repair and maintenance in the Sydney region this year and $81M in 2011. This contract is part of that planned expenditure.

Last week the Defence Materiel Organisation also announced that $12 to $17 million worth of work would be undertaken in HMA Ships Kanimbla and Manoora in the Sydney region over the coming months.
