ADF DIESELS MAINTENANCE CONTRACT AWARDED TO PENSKE POWER SYSTEMS

Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, today announced the signing of a $78 million contract delivering supply support and maintenance services for the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) diesel engines.   

Minister Pyne said the contract supports diesel equipment and auxiliary systems that power the Royal Australian Navy’s Anzac class frigates, the Australian Army’s ASLAV armoured fighting vehicles and the M113 armoured personnel carriers.

“Penske Power Systems Pty Ltd will provide supply support services, depot level maintenance and on-site defect rectification to the Anzac class frigates while the Army vehicles will receive depot level maintenance services and program management,” Minister Pyne said. 

“The $78 million five year contract includes an option to extend for a further five years and demonstrates the mutual benefits of partnering with Australian industry to support ADF capability.  

“This contract will directly support approximately 88 Australian jobs across the four Penske locations in Kings Park, NSW, Henderson, WA, Wacol, QLD and Edinburgh in SA; while also securing access to a global supply chain, while maximising Australian local content.  

“The Government is pleased that Defence continues to work closely with industry partners to provide the most effective and efficient use of Commonwealth funding to sustain ADF materiel.”
