The Federal Government of Australia has delivered $24m in funding for planned upgrade works to be carried out at the Cairns Marine Precinct. The Cairns Marine Precinct offers major facilities and support services to the Australian Defence Force and contributes significantly to the local economy and job market.
The government has so far signed agreements relating to the refurbishment project with Australian shipyards, Norship Marine, BSE Cairns Slipways and Tropical Reef Shipyard.
Each company is set receive a part of the funding to carry out various works under the arrangement, which is expected to improve the capability and enhance the capacity of the site’s existing shipyards.
According to the Australian Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne, the shipyard modernisation projects will include upgrades to electrical and fire systems and the construction of more than 170m of wharf space. The development of new workshop and security systems, hardstand resurfacing, and construction of an additional 135m of slipway rail are also scheduled as part of the development.
Pyne said: “Cairns provides vital facilities and support services to the Australian Defence Force, and this upgrade work will mean they are well-placed to keep doing so into the future.

The $24m funding is an addition to the Australian Government’s $420m investment to create additional wharf space and other support facilities at the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) base HMAS Cairns. (Source: naval-technology.com)
