Babcock welcomes nuclear-powered submarines sustainment partner announcement

Babcock Australasia welcomes today’s announcement that the Australian Submarine Corp (ASC) has been named as the sovereign sustainment partner to support the nation’s inaugural nuclear-powered submarines.

Babcock is a long-standing partner to ASC in support of the sustainment of the Collins Class submarines and looks forward to continuing this strong association in support of Australia’s optimal pathway to sovereign nuclear-powered submarines.

We are world-leaders in nuclear submarine capability, playing a crucial role in the UK, US and Australia’s submarine programs today.

Babcock sustains 100 per cent of the UK’s Royal Navy submarine fleet and we own and operate and the UK’s only licensed facility for refitting, refuelling and defueling nuclear submarines.

Through our partnership with HII, we bring more than 100 years of proven experience, in the key areas of sustainment, workforce development, nuclear infrastructure design and build, submarine defueling and decommissioning and nuclear waste.
