Delivering cost effective sustainment solutions to ANZAC Class Frigates

Naval Ship Management (Australia) Pty Ltd is a joint venture between Babcock Pty Ltd and UGL Limited to undertake the planning, scheduling, management and execution of preventative and corrective maintenance for naval ships and their system support facilities on the East and West Coast of Australia.

In 2012, NSM successfully won the Group Maintenance Contract for the repair and maintenance of the Royal Australian Navy’s ANZAC Class Frigates and was administered by ANZAC Systems Program Office (SPO), part of Defence Materiel Organization (DMO) which has subsequently changed its name to the Capability and Sustainment Group (CASG).

In 2016, NSM secured a long term contract with the Commonwealth – Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) – for the sustainment of the Australian ANZAC Class Frigates. The contract represents a strategic partnership between BAE Systems, SAAB, Naval Ship Management and the Commonwealth of Australia (CoA) for the sustainment and total asset management of the ANZAC Frigates through to the end of their life. NSM is responsible for maintenance delivery, bringing together an integrated schedule and elements of logistics supply previously undertaken by the Commonwealth of Australia.

NSM consists of some 125 personnel, employed by Babcock and UGL, and are based in Perth and Sydney.  The main office is located in Henderson, Western Australia.
