Submarine Industry Day comes to Sydney

future submarine program

Representatives from the Future Submarines Program yesterday briefed Australian industry delegates in Sydney about opportunities available in the program.

The industry day in Sydney, which was held at the National Maritime Museum, was the second one so far, with the first being held earlier in Adelaide in November last year.

Briefings from the Department of Defence, DCNS and Lockheed Martin Australia were provided, with Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne saying these briefings and events are critical to the realisation and development of Australia's submarine capabilities.

"Australian industry involvement is central to realising our objective of developing a sovereign submarine capability for the nation," said Minister Pyne.

The event was at full capacity with 300 people in attendance and a wait list of 50, demonstrating the interest in this project from other companies.

Minister Pyne also made note of the positive feedback the Adelaide Submarine Industry Day received, with attendees commenting on the benefit of the briefings, which included information on the timeline and progress of the Future Submarine Program.

"This builds on the successes of the first industry day held in Adelaide in November last year, which was attended by more than 450 representatives from Australian industry, research and development organisations and educational institutions."

Minister Pyne said the Australian submarine build is expected to generate an annual average of around 2,800 jobs.
