Home to the nation’s largest shipbuilding industry, the AMC offers access to highly skilled workers and world-class infrastructure. Located within the AMC’s Shipbuilding Precinct, the Marine Support Facility provides substantial marine repair, refit and modernisation capability.
The facility is equipped with extensive dry-berth support infrastructure including one of Australia’s largest ship-lifts with a nominal lifting capacity of 8,065 tonnes.
The ship-lift can be used for a wide range of commercial vessels accommodating ships up to 140 metres in length with 23 beams. The new floating dock can also lift and launch vessels up to 12,000 tonnes. The AMC has the capacity to meet a wide range of shipbuilding and vessel maintenance needs.
