Facilities and Precincts

Home to the largest marine industry in Australia, the Australian Marine Complex (AMC) was developed to facilitate and enhance the opportunities created by the clustering of sectors servicing the marine, defence and resources industry.

To facilitate further industry participation in these major developments, the AMC is arranged into four adjoining precincts, each with a particular service focus.

The Technology Precinct is dedicated to strategic innovation and enterprise within the marine, defence, oil and gas technology and research sectors. The Technology Precinct includes the new AMC Jakovich Function Centre and Australian Centre for Energy Process Training (ACEPT) facility.

The Shipbuilding Precinct is Australia's largest commercial shipbuilding precinct and home to all of Australia's major ship builders. Located within the Shipbuilding Precinct at the AMC, is the Marine Support Facility which provides substantial marine repair, refit and modernisation capability. This is an integral part of the Western Australia's burgeoning shipbuilding, ship repair and maintenance industry.

The Support Industry Precinct includes leading manufacturing and service companies, dedicated to providing support to the shipbuilding, defence and resource industries within the AMC and world-wide export markets. All land within the AMC is sold but industrial land is available at the nearby Flinders Precinct in Hope Valley.


The Fabrication Precinct, includes the Common User Facility that provides world-class, multi-purpose facilities for the fabrication, assembly and load-out of pre-assembled unit up to 15,000 tonnes for local, national and international projects. The specialist infrastructure makes an exciting range of global engineering and manufacturing options available. Special use industrial land is available within the Precinct suitable for companies specialising in the subsea oil and gas sector.
