BAE delivers more AWD blocks

A further two Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) blocks manufactured at BAE Systems’ Williamstown shipyard have been sent to Osborne, South Australia.

BAE Systems Director of Maritime Bill Saltzer said: “Our AWD Project team has again delivered a quality product, on schedule. Both blocks (111 and 415) for ship 3 were accepted by AWD lead shipbuilder ASC following inspections at the Williamstown shipyard prior to dispatch.

“Our shipbuilders deserve recognition for the very high quality and productivity they have achieved on for ship 2 and ship 3 blocks. We have made significant investments in improving our shipbuilding capability and this is benefitting our customer. On AWD blocks that we have produced for more than one ship, we have consistently achieved productivity improvements from one block to the next which demonstrates the benefits that can be achieved with continuous production.”

Work is continuing on the remaining eight blocks for ship 3 which will be completed early next year.
