RFIs open for Future Submarine equipment and services

Naval Group, designer of Australia's Future Submarines, has released more Requests for Information (RFIs) to Australian industry for the $50-billion SEA 1000 program.

Twenty-two packages for a range of equipment and services required to deliver the future submarines have been released this month, including valves, fire protection equipment, thermostats, sensors, laboratories and testing.

The RFIs close 30 April.

In a cover letter available to businesses, Naval Group said it is crucial that Australian businesses are capable of meeting the company's "technical, time scale and safety needs".

"The purpose of this RFI is to collect written information from Australian companies on their capability to supply products and technologies required to manufacture and sustain these submarines in Australia," the letter said.

Businesses looking to submit RFIs can access the information on the ICN gateway here.

The latest RFIs come after 15 packages opened in March, 10 in January and 14 opened in November last year.

Naval Group was selected as the designer and builder of Australia's Future Submarines in 2016.

The submarines will be built in Adelaide with construction to commence in 2021-22. Construction will run into the late 2040-50 time frame.
