PODCAST: Potential powerplant for SEA 5000, Rob Madders, Rolls-Royce Australia Services

Rob Madders, Rolls-Royce

Low underwater radiating noise is an important attribute for a defence vessel where undetectability in the underwater battlespace is key. Rolls-Royce has previously had success with the Type 23 frigate and now has further plans within the Australian defence industry.

Low underwater radiating noise is an important attribute for a defence vessel where undetectability in the underwater battlespace is key. Rolls-Royce has previously had success with the Type 23 frigate and now has further plans within the Australian defence industry.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, program director of Rolls-Royce Australia Services Rob Madders joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss the company’s bid in the SEA 5000 proposal and its partnership with Australian industrial engineering firm Marand. Supporting this partnership, Madders talks about how Rolls-Royce has been building its supply chain within Australia, unpacks the government’s role in influencing such decisions, and shares what is involved in a business becoming affiliated with the Rolls-Royce brand.

Madders also discusses the history of Rolls-Royce within defence industry and share how its benchmark work with the Type 23 frigate will impact its plans going forward with the Type 26 frigate should their bid be successful, the changes in the Australian defence industry over the past two decades, and shares his thoughts on Australia as a shipbuilding hub.
