Naval Ship Management (Australia) (NSM) has extended its partnership with Sydney City Marine (SCM) for facility and vessel maintenance services for the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) 12 Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) Landing Craft (LLC). The long-term agreement with Sydney City Marine is a natural fit for NSM after Sydney City Marine were awarded Naval Technical Bureau (NTB) qualification from the Director General Engineering – Navy for slipping and docking vessels. The agreement enables NSM to meet the contractual obligations of the LHD Asset Class Prime Contractor contract and is another example of NSM’s inclusive approach to naval sustainment and commitment to Australian industry.

Sydney City Marine provides local and sovereign sustainment capabilities and is conveniently located in Rozelle with waterway access to key Defence establishments such as HMAS Waterhen and Fleet Base East (Garden Island Dockyard).

NSM’s General Manager Joe Smith said “NSM is committed to supporting local small-to-medium sized businesses throughout the Australian maritime industry and we’re proud to extend this valued partnership with Sydney City Marine.”

Sydney City Marine’s Director Brenton Fischer said “this long-term agreement further validates our credentials as a key service provider for Defence assets and ensuring the availabilities of the LLCs is critical in achieving the fully operational conditions of the LHDs, a responsibility to NSM that we take very seriously.”
