Navantia Australia initially unveiled its plan to bid for the project during last year’s Land Forces Exhibition in Brisbane, showcasing a series of locally designed landing crafts.

“The partnership between Navantia Australia and UGL offers combined experience in collaborating with both Navy and Army, to deliver superior results,” Israel Lozano, managing director of Navantia Australia, said.

“Together we offer Defence a highly compliant design, cost effective delivery, surety of supply, contribution to the Naval Shipbuilding Plan and maximum Australian content.”

Doug Moss, managing director of UGL, welcomed the opportunity to enhance AIC and Australia’s sovereign naval shipbuilding capability.

“I’m pleased that UGL has teamed with Navantia Australia to bring our substantial Australian heavy manufacturing expertise and genuine Australian sovereign capability to enhance the Australian naval shipbuilding capability.”
