The Australian Government is currently considering the optimal strategy and location for ongoing sustainment of the Collins Class submarines. To align with the Naval Shipbuilding Plan any decision must focus on building and sustaining the country’s naval and industrial capabilities, to generate economic growth and provide local jobs into the future. It must ensure all risks to the enterprise are mitigated, costs are managed, and availability of the Collins Class submarines is not compromised over the medium-to-long term during the transition to the Attack Class submarines.
