Austal opens Marine Support Base in Henderson, Western Australia.

 

To meet the growing demand for its marine services and facilities, Austal has officially announced the opening of its Marine Support Base in Henderson, Western Australia. Located adjacent to Austal’s Henderson shipyard, the Henderson Marine Support Base provides comprehensive refit, repair and maintenance services to private, commercial and defence operators. The site boasts four 90 metre berths, six sheds ranging between 85 and 120 metres in length, workshop and fabrication facilities, 11,200 square metres of hardstand and capacity to lift vessels up 1800 tonnes.

 

Regional Service Manager Beau McCormack said: “We have unique facilities and extensive in-house capabilities and this is becoming of increasing interest to a market that is highly constrained, especially in the defence and oil and gas sectors. “The comprehensive nature of our business has also attracted the interest of the resources and oil and gas industries who we work with locally and in the North West of Australia. With our engineering, fabrication, welding and modular manufacturing capability, we have built accommodation units, industrial cooling towers and more,” he added.

 

The launching of Austal’s existing site as a dedicated Marine Support Base is a continuation of the company’s regionalisation strategy which involves providing local services to local operators. Chief Operating Officer – Systems and Support, Charles McGill said: “We are committed to serving our customers in the region. The Henderson Marine Support Base complements our facilities in Darwin, Singapore and the Philippines, offering a truly comprehensive solution to the defence, commercial, and oil and gas markets within the Asia-Pacific region.”
