KBR Welcomes Amphibious and Replenishment Ship CLCM Contract

Publish date

KBR welcomes the recent announcement that the company has been selected as the industry partner to deliver a sovereign sustainment capability to the Royal Australian’s Navy’s (RAN) Amphibious and Replenishment Ship fleet.  


This is one of the first Capability Life Cycle Management (CLCM) sustainment programs to include multiple asset classes - the Landing Helicopter Dock Ships HMAS Adelaide and HMAS Canberra, Landing Ship Dock HMAS Choules and Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment Ships HMAS Supply and Stalwart.  


For over two decades KBR has provided the RAN with strategic asset management planning, engineering design effort and supply chain optimisation to support a more affordable and operationally available fleet. Today’s announcement sees KBR build on this foundation to support complete lifecycle sustainment for the RAN’s Amphibious and Replenishment ships over five years.   


A workforce of around 100 highly skilled employees will be based at Fleet Base East at Garden Island Defence Precinct in Sydney to support the stewardship of these critical fleet assets which are core to Australia’s maritime and joint forces operational effectiveness.   


The team will be supported by Australian based companies including Babcock Australasia, Atlantic & Peninsula and Goal Group. The CLCM team will contribute to the continued development and growth of the nation’s sovereign maritime sustainment capabilities.  


“The depth of knowledge and experience of supporting the Amphibious and Replenishment fleet in our team is measured in decades and reflects our ambition to provide both fleet availability and capability required by the Navy,” said Nic Mann, KBR Vice President Government Solutions for APAC.


“Combining the unique capabilities and skills of our team will provide strategic asset management services that ensure Navy gets the most out of these ships throughout their life of type. The CLCM model is one that fosters a more collaborative and transparent approach between the RAN, KBR and our team, reflecting the aspiration of Defence’s Plan Galileo and the Maritime Sustainment Model.”
