BAE Systems has won a five-year contract to overhaul the Mk45 guns on the ANZAC fleet for the Royal Australian Navy.
BAE Systems was chosen as the sole source provider of Mk45 Gun in Service Support, Removal, Replacement and Overhaul services.
Director of Maritime Bill Saltzer said the contract was awarded earlier this year following the successful overhaul of the ex USN Radford Gun and Loader for HMAS Stuart, which is now ready to resume operational service.
“Our Technical Services team demonstrated its capability by overcoming the challenges the project presented, including major realignment requirements when fitting the gun and loader on HMAS Stuart,” Mr Saltzer said.
“The overhaul of the remaining guns for the ANZAC fleet will be carried out at the BAE Systems shipyard in Williamstown, Victoria and then installation of the guns will be done in conjunction with the ASMD upgrade when the ships are dry berthed at the BAE Systems shipyard in Henderson, WA.
“Accomplishing the gun overhauls concurrently with the ASMD upgrade will ensure these vital assets will not be out of service for any additional length of time.
“It also means the Navy can also be confident that when the ships resume operation they will have both the benefits of the ASMD upgrade and a fully re-conditioned gun with an extended length of service.”
Australias NUSHIP Adelaide, Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) ship, has completed the final sea trials in Port Phillip Bay. The 27,800 tonne warship will return to BAE Systems Williamstown shipyard later today where she will then be prepared for delivery to the Department of Defences Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) and the Royal Australian Navy (RAN)
