Posted on 26/01/2010  

Work has been completed on a $120 million upgrade of the former Submarine Corporation shipyard at Osborne in Adelaide. The upgraded ASC facility will be the key construction site in the Federal Government's $8 billion air warfare destroyer program. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has officially opened the shipyard. He says the defence project involves the work of more than 50 companies, sub-contractors and suppliers. "This shipyard which we are opening is home to the biggest defence project ever undertaken in Australia," he said. "The shipyard will provide jobs for Australians and help build Australia's future."
