Approved Major Capital Equipment Projects

Top 30 Projects by 2004-05 Expenditure

SEA 1439 Ph 3 Collins-class Reliability and Sustainability Improvements

Prime contractor: ASC Pty Ltd

This project will provide a large number of reliability, sustainability and safety improvements to the Collins-class submarines through the on-going implementation of the McIntosh/Prescott report recommendations and the work of the submarine capability team. It also addresses current shortcomings in the submarine support infrastructure.

A number of the smaller modifications have been completed during 2004-05. Further modifications, including special forces, fire fighting and sewage system upgrades, will be incorporated into the submarines during major planned maintenance periods. Full Cycle Docking of the second submarine HMAS Collins, including the fitting of components of the special forces modifications, has been completed.

Expenditure for the year was slightly less than the revised estimate due to competing priorities relating to other work being carried out by ASC Ltd.

This project contributes to Navy capability.
