READY TO BUILD: NINE ANTI-SUBMARINE FRIGATES IN ADELAIDE
Fincantieri will build all the Frigates in Adelaide with an Australian shipbuilding workforce starting in 2020. We are preparing now by sending work from our international shipyards to Australia. Today we are operating in Adelaide, using Australian steel and Australian workers to build cruise ship blocks in Adelaide and mechanical components in Perth.
Recruitment activities for Australian management, engineers, supervisors and technicians have commenced. More than 150 Australians will join the Italian FREMM Project from 2018, in Italy, to train with Fincantieri before returning to Australia to lead the project.
