High-Tech Ship Center Creates Jobs

Thursday, November 10, 2005
A $30 million center to coordinate an Australian air warfare destroyer project will be based in the southern city of Adelaide, creating up to 200 jobs, according to an Advertiser reports. Cabinet decided to base the center near the Outer Harbor base of ASC, the company which secured the $6 billion destroyer contract. The new AWD Systems Center will manage such major aspects of the complex shipbuilding project as design schedule and budgets. The 200 high-end jobs will include systems engineers, project managers and supply chain managers. In May, ASC beat Victorian shipbuilder Tenix for the $6 billion Federal Government contract to build three ships. The State Government is injecting $140 million into a maritime precinct next to ASC.
