Delivering world-leading sustainment and support for Australia’s LHD and LLC assets

Babcock provides the support and sustainment program for two Canberra Class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD), HMA Ships Canberra and Adelaide, and 12 LHD Landing Craft (LLC) at the Garden Island Defence Precinct.

After an initial six-month phase-in period, starting in December 2018, the sustainment program commenced from mid-June 2019. Pivotal to success of this project is close collaboration with Navy and the creation of over 1,000 direct and indirect jobs across Australia, growing the capability of Australia’s SME defence industry.

Our strategic partnership with the Royal Australian Navy assists to achieve the Commonwealth’s Enterprise Objectives through:

  • Asset management services compliant with ISO 55001
  • A long-established culture of collaboration augmented through alignment with ISO 44001
  • A practical and transparent strategy for Australianising the supply chain
  • A team who will deliver maximum Class availability.
