SAGE Automation has announced a major commercial and industrial partnership with Spanish original equipment manufacturer Detegasa at Euronaval 2018.

SAGE Automation has announced a major commercial and industrial partnership with Spanish original equipment manufacturer Detegasa at Euronaval 2018.

An exclusive, ongoing support contract, signed just weeks ago will allow SAGE to expand its existing through-life-support (TLS) capabilities for the Royal Australian Navy surface ships, by providing in-country support for Detegasa equipment on board LHD, DDG and future AOR vessels.

SAGE general manager for defence Paul Johnson said, "We see this agreement and partnership with Detegasa as a game changer for our TLS delivery. We very much look forward to working with Detegasa to bring value to the Defence support managing contractors and Navy assets."

The contract, potentially worth millions of dollars to the Australian economy each year, will also set the basis for SAGE to manufacture Detegasa equipment in Australia for future programs, including the BAE Hunter Class Frigates. 

Euronaval has provided SAGE with the opportunity to promote its capabilities to an international audience and meet with world leaders in the maritime space. 

"We have a unique suite of engineering services and a solid history of supporting and delivering naval solutions for prime contractors like BAE Systems, Thales and Navantia. This has meant SAGE has been able to successfully deliver more than $50 million worth of defence solutions in just over 10 years," said SAGE CEO Adrian Fahey.

SAGE is a global group with a team of 350 people across three continents, 13 offices and five companies. Currently, 30 of SAGE’s 350-plus workforce are employed directly in defence roles.
