Saab to sustain ANZAC-class CMS

5th July 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab Australia has been awarded a $37 million contract by the Australian government for the sustainment of the combat system on the Royal Australian Navy's Anzac-class frigates, it announced on 4 July.

This is the company’s first order under the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) announced in May. It will see Saab provide on-going engineering support services from July 2016 to December 2017 in South Australia and Western Australia.

WAMA covers the long-term delivery and performance of seaworthy Anzac class frigates and support infrastructure.  The WAMA team, of which Saab is a part, is responsible for ensuring that the ANZAC-class ships remain at a high level of availability and capability for the Royal Australian Navy.

Dean Rosenfield, managing director for Saab Australia, said: ‘The agreement and this order reflect our highly successful and long term commitment to the Anzac frigate and the Australian navy. The Anzac frigates are the trusted workhorse of the navy and Saab has played a major role in evolving the fighting capability of the ships over the last 20 years. We look forward to continue working with our local partners to ensure the Anzacs continue to fulfil navy’s needs.’
