Shamrock Civil Engineering is pleased to announce the award of the contract by the Australian Naval Infrastructure Pty Ltd (ANI) for the construction of a staging and laydown area in Osborne, South Australia. This area will support the construction workforce for the new Submarine Construction Yard. With Osborne set to become the birthplace of Australia’s home-built nuclear submarines, the preliminary work is now underway.
Minister for Defence Richard Marles stated that the beginning of these enabling works was another significant milestone for Australia, as it progresses towards commencing the construction of the first SSN-AUKUS by the end of this decade. He added that there had been an enormous amount of work over the past 12 months towards realizing the AUKUS pathway, and that progress would continue in 2024.The acquisition of nuclear-powered submarines is the most significant industrial undertaking in Australia’s history. The important work that has happened over the past year will continue to progress swiftly into the future.
Shamrock Civil’s Managing Director, Brendan Kealy, is looking forward to delivering another successful project for Australian Naval Infrastructure in the Osborne precinct. “Shamrock Civils’ 16-year history in delivering quality projects for the Australian defence force has placed us well to construct this key project which marks the commencement of the preliminary enabling work at the submarine construction yard.”
