MilCIS 2024 728x90Birdon Group was recently recognised by the Asset Management Council of Australasia and received the Asset Management Sustainability Award for its work on the ex-HMAS Sirius Deconstruction & Recycling Project.

This award celebrates excellence in asset management strategies, frameworks, projects, and products that demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainable outcomes aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The project marked a milestone in sustainable maritime practices, with Birdon Group pioneering an environmentally responsible approach to decommissioning Australia’s largest maritime structure, the former naval refuelling ship, HMAS Sirius.

The process achieved a remarkable 99.13% material recovery rate, demonstrating Birdon Group’s commitment to environmental stewardship and setting a new industry standard for sustainable asset management.

The successful deconstruction of the ex-HMAS Sirius, conducted at the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson, Western Australia, was a collaborative effort between Birdon and the Department of Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG).

Trent Raines, Disposals Manager at Birdon, emphasised the collective nature of this achievement, stating, “This award is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication, supported by CASG, in fostering greener and more resilient asset management practices.”
