Defence will use the equipment in Australia and overseas for multiple engineering activities, including:

  • Earthworks, route development and maintenance;
  • Airfield construction and repair;
  • Port operations, supply and distribution; and
  • Amphibious/beach operations.

Under Project LAND 8120 Phase 1, Defence is seeking a company to deliver a suite of modified commercial-off-the-shelf solutions maximising Australian industry involvement.

Project LAND 8120 seeks to provide a replacement capability effect for the Australian Defence Force earth-moving and material handling equipment (MHE) engineer support platforms.

Platform tasks in Australia and on deployment include construction, demolition, development of protective earthworks, route development and maintenance, airfield and port construction and repair, port operations, supply and distribution, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and beach recovery.

Platforms include cranes, excavators, front-end loaders, tractors, bulldozers, rollers, graders, skid-steer loaders, tele-handlers, concrete production plants, rock crushers and beach recovery.

The RFT closes on 30 July 2019.
