Navantia Australia Signs Memorandum of Understanding with Century Engineering

Adelaide, 6 March 2018

 

Navantia Australia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Century Engineering to undertake joint development services for the rudder arrangement and stowage locker innovation in the F-5000, Navantia Australia’s proposed Future Frigate.  Based in Adelaide, Century Engineering has a long history in engineering and manufacture for naval ship construction.

 

“Century Engineering has a wide technical and commercial presence in Australia and will bring its significant skills and experience in Naval shipbuilding programs to the Future Frigate program” said Navantia Australia Managing Director Donato Martinez. “The experience which Century has built as a supplier on the Hobart Class will provide significant continuity between the Hobart Class and the F-5000, with opportunities for Australian companies such as Century to grow their business in naval shipbuilding.”

 

In addition to work on the F-5000, Century will also support Navantia Australia in identifying areas of opportunity for potential internal stowage locker modifications to the Canberra Class amphibious ships and Hobart Class destroyers. 

 

“Century welcomes this opportunity to partnering with Navantia Australia” said Century Engineering Managing Director David Heaslip. “This is an opportunity for Century to build on the experience we have gained and the capability we have developed through the Hobart Class program.  We are delighted to now have the opportunity to partner with Navantia on the Future Frigates.”

 

Navantia Australia’s bid for Australia’s Future Frigates involves hundreds of Australian companies and the company is already providing export opportunities for Australians capability through its bids in Canada and the United States.
