Osborne Naval Shipyard – a world-class shipyard

In its 2017 Naval Shipbuilding Plan and the subsequent 2020 Force Structure Plan, the Australian Government announced a planned investment to establish a secure, sustainable and continuous National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise (the Enterprise). As the largest capital investment ever undertaken in Australia, the Enterprise represents a new direction in the way Australia underpins its national security interests. The Enterprise will establish a long-term sustainable Australian naval shipbuilding and sustainment capability that will generate industry growth and secure Australian jobs for the future.

The Osborne Naval Shipyard is a key enabler of the Enterprise with several significant construction and upgrade programs underway or intended for implementation at the shipyard, providing opportunities for employment and industry engagement on some of Australia’s most exciting naval shipbuilding programs.
