Austal and Fassmer are holding a series of Industry Engagement Forums across Victoria in support of their bid for SEA1180 the Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) Program.

More than 70 local industry representatives attended the recent briefing in Melbourne's CBD, with a similar briefing already held in Bendigo and further events planned for Geelong (28 July) and the Latrobe Valley (early August - final date and timings to be confirmed).

Current and potential suppliers to AustalFassmer’s partnership for the Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) Project are encouraged to attend.

Victorian industry is expected to play a key part in the project’s supply chain.

Austal is an Australian-based, global shipbuilding company and Australia’s biggest defence exporter. Fassmer is a leading German shipbuilder renowned for their expertise in ship design.

Companies that haven't already done so are being urged to register your details on the Austal supplier registration portal, CPORT.

By registering your company details and capabilities, you can stay up to date with valuable opportunities to work collaboratively with AustalFassmer to deliver the Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) Project - and support the end goal of a sovereign shipbuilding capability - as well as other future opportunities to work with Austal.
