Saab has received an order from the Australian government that will see the continuation of sustainment for the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) fleet of Anzac-class frigates, the company announced in a 24 February statement.

“This five-year follow-on programme is a continuation of the ongoing framework sustainment agreement that covers the Anzac-class frigates, shore support, and training facilities through the remaining life of the capability,” said the company.

“Saab Australia has been supporting the Anzac-class frigates for 20 years and, under the sustainment agreement, will continue to provide combat system engineering, in-service support, and maintenance services,” said Saab, pointing out that the order was placed under the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA): a strategic partnership that includes Saab Australia, BAE Systems Australia Defence, and Naval Ship Management Australia.
