Naval Group issues RFIs in support of Australian submarine programme

12 December 2017

Naval Group (formerly DCNS) has issued a raft of tender notices in support of efforts to identify Australian companies that can support its SEA 1000 programme to build 12 next-generation submarines for Royal Australian Navy (RAN).

In request for information (RFI) documents calling for responses by January 2018, Naval Group said it is looking for local firms that can support the submarine programme by producing and offering a range of systems and components.

These include steel and titanium bars, steel forged parts, copper alloy parts, steel castings, titanium castings, regulators, anti-vibration mounts, valves, static converters, frequency invertors, hydraulic accumulators, and hydraulic power plants.
