Civmec Modularisation

29 March 2017 in Uncategorized Posted by

Through our commitment to innovation and technology Civmec has developed the capability to provide a complete modularisation solution to the oil and gas, metals and minerals, infrastructure, marine and defence sectors. Our scope of service includes fabrication, assembly, electrical instrumentation,  pre-commissioning, transportation and the installation of the modules.

Our state-of-the-art workshops provide the necessary facility and resources for the fabrication and assembly of large modules. Modularisation reduces man-hours and associated HSE risks on site, to further the efficiency of this approach Civmec can minimise the number of modules required, by maximising the size of each module. Subsequently, reducing the number of modules for transport.

Our facilities on the East and West coast are strategically located to adjoining water fronts. Enabling efficient scheduling of ships and movement of materials, supporting our ability to effectively deliver modules on time, with no impact to the community.

In addition, we own transportation and lifting equipment to ensure the movement and handling of modules are conducted safely and efficiently. Making Civmec a one-stop shop for the supply of modules.

Civmec Unveils Plans for Mega World-Class Shipbuilding Facility at the Australian Marine Complex, Henderson, Western Australia.

16 December 2016 in Uncategorized Posted by

Civmec Limited (“Civmec” or the “Group”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Forgacs Marine and Defence Pty Ltd will today unveil plans for its new state-of-the-art shipbuilding facility primarily targeted at Naval Defence projects, at a ground-breaking ceremony today officiated by, the Honourable Colin Barnett, the Premier of Western Australia (“WA”).

The heavy engineering specialist is positioning itself for participation in Australia’s A$89 billion (S$94 billion) naval ship and submarine upgrading program, which forms part of the Australian government’s projected A$195 billion (S$207 billion) overall defence investment over the decade from now until 2025-26*. The new facility in Henderson will rival the best shipyards in the world and is part of Forgacs goal to enhance Australia’s profile as a globally efficient naval ship builder.

The facility will be able to house ship construction and on-going maintenance under cover in a conducive and efficient environment close to Fleet Base West – the home of Australia’s submarine force and half of its naval surface fleet. It will be the only facility with this capacity in Australia.

The Group, which has developed a suite of core competencies in heavy engineering, believes that these in-house capabilities, its dedicated shipbuilding facility and its securing of the strong Forgacs credibility will position the company as a force to be reckoned with for the Commonwealth Governments upgrade and expansion programs.

At this point, the Group anticipates an overall investment in the region of A$80 million to develop the entire facility over the coming years. Based on this timing of construction it is intended that the proposed new facility be funded using internal cash resources and borrowings. Design and planning have already commenced with a further more detailed focus on engineering and geotechnical analysis occurring immediately in the New Year.
