The team was invited aboard by Captain Stuart Watters to tour the ship and hear about its capability; something which was demonstrated during the ship’s participation in Operation Fiji Assist 2020.

“Team Downer was grateful to accept Captain Watters invitation to tour the ship,” said Team Downer’s general manager, Chris Lovejoy.

“It was an excellent opportunity for our people get onboard the ship and view firsthand such an impressive example of the Navy capability that our work contributes to.  

“The scale and feel of HMAS Adelaide, along with the engagement with the crew, really brought home the relevance of what goes into the work we do in supporting the acquisition and sustainment of ships.”

Team Downer is currently supporting a number of Defence projects across the warfighting domains, on behalf of CASG, including the Maritime Support, Specialist Ships, Major Surface Ships and Naval Construction branches.

The team is also supporting CASG’s implementation of Plan Galileo across Australia, designed to meet Navy’s strategic vessel sustainment needs.
