Under the partnership, a Taylor Bros team has been embedded into Navantia's design and production for the Future Frigate Program. The team will identify feasible solutions to meet the mixed messing requirements for the Future Frigates and scheduling of work. The project commenced this week.

Navantia and Taylor Bros will partner on this project from the design stage, right through to turnkey habitability. The final building specifications for accommodation will meet Lloyd’s Register Naval Ship Rules standards, DEF (AUST) 5000 (Maritime Requirements Set) and Australia’s SEA 5000 ship requirements.

Navantia Australia managing director Donato Martinez said the partnership is a continuation of longstanding collaboration between the businesses.

“We are very pleased to be continuing our relationship with Taylor Bros, to produce a modern state-of-the-art design that provides safe, comfortable and functional accommodation on board our F-5000 proposed Future Frigate for the Royal Australian Navy, building on the lessons learned from the Hobart Class design, planning and production activities," Martinez said.

Martinez added that Taylor Bros work on Navantia's auxiliary oiler and replenishment sships, Hobart Class destroyers and Canberra Class amphibious ships is an advantage.

"Taylor Bros’ familiarity with Navantia’s naval designs and strict design criteria enables us to efficiently integrate cutting-edge solutions seamlessly into the F-5000 design. Both teams working in the same digital environment, brings all the manufacturing knowledge to the design process," said Martinez.

"This allows Navantia Australia to design minimising supply chain management, planning and production costs from ship one and achieve learning curves as the best in our industry or even improve them."

BAE Systems and Fincantieri are also bidding for the SEA 5000 project, which will see the winner design, build and sustain nine new anti-submarine warfare frigates to replace Australia's Anzac frigate fleet.

A decision on the project is expected by April this year.
