NSM provides the continued maintenance of Australian Anzac-class frigates as part of the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA). WAMA, on loan in 2016, is a strategic partnership with NSM, BAE Systems, SAAB and the Commonwealth to manage the assets of Anzac-class frigates until the end of their lifespan. Together, the Alliance provides warships that are materially capable of long-term efficiency for the Royal Australian Navy. BAE Systems Australia ($1.33 billion), Saab Australia (US$125 million) and Naval Ship Management (US$444 million) will work on the current framework agreement to support the ANZAC class, shore aid and training organizations over the remaining capacity life. As part of the upgrade, some content is moved and the location is changed. Currently, the eight ships in the class are being driven by ANZAC`s Intermediate Life Capacity Assurance (AMCAP) program, which will include a series of upgrades, including a new active phased air monitoring radar. HMAS Arunta has been in the field since September of last year in Henderson`s Common User Facility, and work on each frigate is expected to take approximately a year and be completed by the end of 2022. HMAS Toowoomba (II) is the seventh Anzac-class frigate to enter service in 2003 and commissioned in 2005. It was scheduled for its usual maintenance, but the ship`s regular maintenance activity revealed that the oil distribution box was leaking… Most of the WAMA work is done at Henderson, AV. Naval Ship Management consists of a joint venture between UGL and Babcock.
NSM offers a number of support services to the ANZAC class, including: The Defense site is being developed and updated to our new website and user experience. We appreciate your patience as we move through this process.
