Naval Group opens new Port Adelaide base as rapid workforce ramp up continues


Naval Group’s new Port Adelaide base was officially opened last week as the facility gears up to move the Attack Class submarine construction yard.

With an audience of more than 200 VIPs and Naval Group staff, the Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon. Linda Reynolds CSC opened the Port Adelaide base, coinciding the event with the announcement of Naval Group’s first of many major local manufacturing packages for 23 specialised submarine parts.

On Monday, Naval Group also launched its first ‘Local Manufacturing Package’ Expression of Interest to Australian industry that will see the manufacturing of complex specialised submarine equipment take place in Australia – expected to be worth almost $900 million.
