VIDEO: Australian Minister for Defence Visits BAE Systems Dockyard

first_img View post tag: Dockyard Authorities View post tag: Navy View post tag: BAE Minister for Defence Stephen Smith, Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare and Attorney-General and Member for Gellibrand Nicola Roxon today visited the BAE Systems dockyard in Williamstown, Melbourne, to view progress on the construction of Australia’s largest ever warship.Australia is acquiring two Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) ships at a total cost of over $2 billion.The hulls for these ships are being built in Spain with the superstructure construction and integration work being undertaken at Williamstown.BAE Systems is the Prime Contractor for the LHD project and is managing the overall project in cooperation with subcontractors Navantia, Saab and L-3 Communications.Construction of the first LHD began in September 2008. The first three blocks were laid down in September 2010 and the hull was launched in February 2011.  The hull arrived in Williamstown in October this year.Work is now underway to complete this ship.  This year alone, BAE has completed more than 750,000 hours of work and plans to have one million hours of work completed by the end of this year.The Ministers took the opportunity to see Block 811, weighing over 300 tonnes, which has recently been lifted onto the hull of the first LHD for consolidation.The remaining superstructure blocks are expected to be consolidated on the hull before the end of this year.This ship will enter RAN service in 2014 and will be commissioned as HMAS Canberra. The second is expected to enter service in 2016 and will be commissioned as HMAS Adelaide.The hull of the second LHD was launched in July and is due to arrive in Australia for superstructure completion and fitting out in early 2014.The introduction into service of these ships will mark a significant change in the way the Australian Defence Force (ADF) deploys its land forces and conducts amphibious operations.Each ship with its crew of around 300 personnel can carry and embark a combined armed battlegroup of more than 1100 personnel, 100 armoured vehicles, 12 helicopters and features a 40-bed hospital.“The construction of the LHD is a significant milestone and is ensuring a new era for Defence’s amphibious force capability,”Mr Smith said.“As the ADF draws down from Afghanistan, East Timor and the Solomon Islands, the ADF will be developing a ship to shore amphibious capability through the use of our LHDs.“This will further enhance our interoperability with United States forces.”“The LHDs are bigger than Australia’s last aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne,” Mr Clare said.“The flight deck on the LHD is as big as 24 tennis courts and could fit four ANZAC Class frigates.“The LHD will be equipped with a hospital that could treat a town the size of Warrnambool and it generates enough electricity to power a city the size of Darwin.”“It’s fantastic to have Ministers Smith and Clare visit BAE’s Williamstown shipyards.  BAE Systems are well placed to lead this important project that is delivering jobs to Melbourne’s West,” Ms Roxon said.“Local businesses including Able Engineering in Kingsville, Pronto Cement in Sunshine and Kennedy Plumbing Services in Williamstown have all contributed to the production of some of the most advanced warships in the world.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 4, 2012; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: Defence View post tag: Systems Back to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: Australian Minister for Defence Visits BAE Systems Dockyard View post tag: Australiancenter_img View post tag: Minister View post tag: visits View post tag: Naval Share this article VIDEO: Australian Minister for Defence Visits BAE Systems Dockyard View post tag: News by topic December 4, 2012last_img read more

Royal Navy Trains in Port of Milford Haven, UK

Participants in the exercise will be working through a series of tasks designed to replicate what the Royal Navy could do to support a commercial port and sustain safe commercial operations.This includes diving on wrecks, surveying for safe anchorages, briefing merchant shipping on safety and security, and escorting merchant shipping into and out of port.Together with Dyfed Powys Police, the Port of Milford Haven and members of the Army Reserve, the exercise will involve well over a hundred people, yet it will be almost unseen by the public because so much of the activity is waterborne, or at the Port’s Headquarters.Maritime Trade Operations are the link between merchant shipping and the military, supporting the free and safe passage of legitimate shipping in trouble spots around the world. With over 90% of world trade transported by sea, this is an essential part of a whole range of capabilities which the Royal Navy deploys to provide security at sea and protect our economic lifelines.Commander Simon Cottam, who leads the Navy’s Maritime Trade Operations specialisation, said:“This is a big event in our calendar and Milford Haven is a great location, with the kind of high value shipping we could find ourselves liaising with in the Gulf, or in counter-piracy operations off East Africa.”The Port of Milford Haven will be supporting the exercise throughout, including hosting a temporary operations room, set up for the duration of the exercise.Bill Hirst, Harbourmaster at the Port of Milford Haven, said:“As the third largest Port in the UK safely handling 29% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas, Milford Haven provides a great base for those wanting to understand how a busy commercial port operates.“Opportunities to exercise with the Royal Navy are rare and therefore we are pleased that they have chosen Milford Haven and are keen to support them.”[mappress]Press Release, September 19, 2013; Image: Royal Navycenter_img Training & Education Share this article View post tag: of View post tag: Trains Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy Trains in Port of Milford Haven, UK View post tag: Defense View post tag: UK September 19, 2013last_img read more

Sikorsky to Produce New Combat Rescue Helicopters

first_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: New View post tag: produce July 1, 2014 View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: americas View post tag: Combat Sikorsky to Produce New Combat Rescue Helicopters The award of an estimated $1.28 billion Engineering & Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract includes development and integration of the rescue mission systems; delivery of four Combat Rescue Helicopters; as well as seven aircrew and maintainer training systems. Initial training of Air Force aircrew and maintainers and five Combat Rescue Helicopters are also expected to be delivered by 2020, once additional aircraft and training options are exercised. This contract is the first step in the eventual production and fielding of up to 112 aircraft with a potential value of approximately $7.9 billion. Eventual production quantities would be determined year-by-year over the life of the program, based on funding allocations set by Congress and the U.S. Department of Defense acquisition priorities.The Air Force announced in 2010 that it would replace its aging HH-60G PAVE HAWK helicopters. Sikorsky, joined by Lockheed Martin as the major subsystems supplier, offered a UH-60M derivative to replace the venerable PAVE HAWK, also made by Sikorsky, as the Air Force’s new Combat Rescue Helicopter. The aircraft features increased internal fuel capability, compared with today’s HH-60G helicopter, thereby giving the CRH-60 the required range, while increasing its internal cabin space.Like the UH-60M helicopter, the aircraft will feature T700-GE-701D engines, composite wide-chord main rotor blades, and fatigue- and corrosion-resistant machined aero-structures to sustain maneuverability at high density altitudes.Sikorsky has produced more than 700 H-60M BLACK HAWK helicopters for the U.S. government and militaries worldwide, since production aircraft deliveries began in 2007.[mappress]Press Release, July 01, 2014; Image: Sikorsky Aircraft Sikorsky Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., has been awarded a U.S. Air Force contract to develop new combat search and rescue helicopters.
