Australian Naval Infrastructure

Australian Naval Infrastructure Pty Ltd (ANI) is placing Australia at the forefront of naval infrastructure capability.

ANI is a nation-building commitment by the Government of Australia and sees the establishment of state-of-the-art infrastructure for the domestic manufacture of world class naval vessels.

ANI stands for reinvesting into the nation’s economy and its skilled workforce through creating a continuous thriving industry that is in the best interests of Australia.

The naval industry has a long and rich heritage and in respect to this our corporate identity uses Morse code, a communication method still used as an important tool today on seafaring vessels as a means of ‘silent’ communication, or as a fall back when other methods are unavailable or disabled.

The Morse graphic literally translates as A N I.

“We will transform our naval shipbuilding and ship sustainment industry here in Australia; with Australian workers, in Australian shipyards and using Australian resources”

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Former Prime Minister and the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, Former Minister for Defence, http://www.defence.gov.au/navalshipbuildingplan/Docs/NavalShipbuildingPlan.pdf

“In March 2017, the Government established Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) Pty Ltd, which will facilitate the development and construction of new infrastructure at the Osborne shipbuilding facility as outlined in the Naval Shipbuilding Plan released on 16 May 2017.”

Senator the Hon Mathias Cormann, Minister for Finance and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate,

“The Government’s shipbuilding plans are based on long-term continuous builds of surface warships, commencing with construction in Australia of offshore patrol vessels from 2018 and future frigates from 2020. These plans will transform Australia’s naval shipbuilding industry, generate significant economic growth, sustain Australian jobs over the coming decades and assure the long-term future of this key Australian defence industry.”
