Transfield Services, an Australia-based global provider of infrastructure services, has secured two new defense industry contracts totaling $67.6 million (US) for coatings, blasting and related work.
The company announced that it had secured a six-year, $34.8 million contract with ASC on behalf of the Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) Alliance and a three-year, $32.8 million contract with the Department of Defense to provide Comprehensive Maintenance Services (CMS) in Central Northern New South Wales. The CMS contract also has extension options of up to three additional years, potentially doubling its value.
Scope of Work
Transfield Services will perform blast and paint work for the ASC—Australia’s largest defense shipbuilding company—as part of the construction of three AWDs. Work will begin early this year and be carried out at the ASC facility in Adelaide, South Australia, Transfield Services said.
Through the CMS contract, Transfield Services will provide all building and equipment maintenance, call center services and manage a portfolio of capital works projects primarily to RAAF Williamtown in Newcastle and the Singleton Military Area. The work will also encompass services to bases spread from the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney through to the Queensland border.
Transfield Services’ Managing Director and CEO, Peter Goode, said: “This new work reinforces our already well-established position in the defense sector and reflects our ability to provide specialized skills to key industries.”
Transfield Services has also provided Garrison Support Services to the Department of Defense for more than a decade in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia and provides corrosion protection services to the Australian Navy’s six Collins Class Submarines.
Transfield Services serves the oil and gas, power, defense, transport and social infrastructure industries.
