HOUSTON (May 24, 2016)
KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded a five year contract by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) to provide the training services for the Canberra Class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) ships in Sydney, Australia.
In collaboration with the RAN, KBR's Training Solutions Team will evolve the current LHD transition-into-service training system into a world class sustainment training system that produces ships' crew who are qualified and ready to perform their roles the moment they join the ships.
The new RAN training facility in Sydney will use more simulation and emulation in a modern training system, using a blended approach in a contemporary learning environment.
The LHD ships are the largest vessels ever constructed for the Australian Defence Force. HMA Ships Canberra and Adelaide can each transport over 1000 troops, 100 armored vehicles and 12 rotary wing aircraft.
"KBR has a long history of delivering innovative training solutions to defence and government agencies and we are pleased to continue our successful partnership with the Royal Australian Navy," said Rob Hawketts, Vice President, Government Services Asia Pacific.
KBR is a leader in the delivery of major projects and solutions to government, defense, resources and infrastructure clients in Australia, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region and around the world. KBR's Government Services APAC business is headquartered in Canberra.
