Australia’s Sunbuild has been awarded a US$1.6 million contract by the US government to deliver an aircraft maintenance support facility at RAAF Base Darwin in the Northern Territory.

The contract is part of ongoing Force Posture initiatives that will see Australia and the US invest around US$2 billion into existing defence infrastructure and facilities in Australia’s Northern Territory over the next ten years.

Infrastructure and facility development will be concentrated at Robertson Barracks and RAAF Bases Darwin and Tindal, as well as Northern Territory training areas and ranges.

Minister for Defence, Marise Payne, said: ‘The Force Posture initiatives are an important part of the Australia-United States defence relationship. They provide important combined training opportunities which improve our ability to work together to increase stability in the region and respond to crises.’
