Tenders Called for Floating Dock

Thursday, January 25, 2007
The State Government has called for tenders for the construction of a floating dock at the Australian Marine Complex ( AMC ) in Henderson. Industry and Enterprise Minister Francis Logan said the floating dock was part of the $174m AMC expansion announced by Premier Alan Carpenter last year.

The Minister said Australian-based companies were increasingly becoming recognised for their capacity to deliver complex contracts, especially in the shipbuilding and oil and gas industries. The floating dock was crucial to securing long-term maintenance work on the Royal Australian Navy ( RAN ) Collins Class submarine fleet, as well as enhancing WA’s bid for ongoing defence contracts.

The floating dock and associated infrastructure will be used to lift and transfer submarines and ships ashore for major maintenance. It will be capable of accommodating ANZAC Class frigates, commercial ship repair work, the super-yacht industry and sub-sea well-head testing for the oil and gas industry.
