Shipbuilders Call for Sub-Contractors


Taranaki sub-contractors in New Zealand were recently urged to help New Plymouth win a $500 million naval shipbuilding contract. Representatives from about 60 companies heard what Team Tangaroa needed to build nine ships for the Royal New Zealand Navy. Team Tangaroa is a joint project between New Plymouth-based Fitzroy Engineering and British firm Vosper Thornycroft.

Firms were urged to register and complete capability statements by July. The company representatives heard they would be among 300 businesses competing nationwide for sub-contracting work, and would receive no favours. If Team Tangaroa is successful, Fitzroy Engineering will receive a technology transfer package from Vosper Thornycroft to build three 80m offshore patrol vessels and five 37m inshore patrol vessels. The contract's main prize appears to be maintaining the ships over their expected operation life of 20-25 years.
