KBR said Wednesday it will help Naval Group produce and deliver the concept design for a South Australian-based Future Submarine construction yard to the Australian government by July.
Naval Group aims to build the facility at Osborne Naval Shipbuilding precinct.
Greg Conlon, the president of KBR’s Asia-Pacific business, said the company intends to apply its infrastructure engineering and program management experience to the project.
He added the company designed the original Collins submarine facility in South Australia and the Air Warfare Destroyer shipyard.
A team of Naval Group and KBR engineers participated in design workshops within France and Australia during the month of February to discuss concept design and knowledge transfer efforts.
