Babcock-UGL JV Lands $157M Australian Frigate Maintenance Support Contract

BabcockUGL joint venture has secured a potential five-year, $156.7 million contract to help maintain the Australian navy’s Anzac-class frigates, Shephard Media reported Thursday.

Naval Ship Management will provide engineering services for eight Australian frigates beginning this month in support of the Warship Asset Management Agreement program.

WAMA is a collaborative effort of the Commonwealth of Australia, NSM, BAE Systems  and Saab to sustain Anzac-class frigates throughout the fleet’s service life cycle.

Babcock and UGL established NSM to plan, schedule, manage and execute preventative and corrective maintenance measures for different naval ships and system support facilities across the eastern and western coast of Australia.

NSM received an Anzac-class maintenance group contract in 2012, followed by a fleet sustainment contract in 2016.
