Access arrangements and infrastructure usage contracts
ANI provides critical shipyard infrastructure to builders and maintainers of naval vessels in return for access charges and operating cost recoveries for the use of that infrastructure.
In 2018-19, ANI entered into new licence agreements with ASC AWD Shipbuilder Pty Ltd and Luerssen for the Osborne South shipyard to undertake the AWD Program and OPV Program respectively.
Existing access arrangements remain in place for ASC Pty Ltd’s occupation of the Osborne North yard for CCSM sustainment activities.
In early 2019, ANI signed a Term Sheet and Co-ordination Agreement with Naval Group in relation to access to the future submarine yard.
