What the amc can offer you
The AMC is integral to Australia’s frontline defence and is an important asset in maintaining the Royal Australian Navy fleet.
Already the Common User Facility (CUF) has facilitated major works and repair programs for RAN’s Collins Class submarines, ANZAC frigates and supply tankers.
The AMC CUF is home to the world’s most technically sophisticated floating dock which can lift vessels up to 12,000 tonnes out of the water for service.
Its four wharves can accommodate vessels up to 300 metres in length and provide adequate berthing space for major works including ship conversions, refits and repairs.
The AMC CUF is also home to ASC West, a purpose-built submarine repair facility and the WA headquarters of ASC Pty Ltd, an Australian-owned prime defence contractor and builder of the Collins Class submarine and Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyer.
ASC’s Through Life Support contract will see the Collins Class submarines maintained at the CUF over the next 25 years.
Warfare systems developer Raytheon Australia and other defence contractors including BAE Systems also reside within the AMC’s precincts.
