Navantia sizing up LNG carrier repair potential in Western Australia

A Navantia Australia team led by chairman Warren King and managing director Donato Martinez, held discussions with Western Australia industry players on opportunities including LNG carrier repairs. 

West Australian senator Linda Reynolds said, “there is a significant opportunity for Western Australia to become a regional leader in the sustainment and maintenance of LNG vessels in conjunction with the sustainment of the future naval fleet.”

Discussions with the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation included the potential for an LNG carrier repair capability in the state, as well as WA’s substantial naval sustainment and maritime industry.

“With Navantia Australia’s expertise in LNG carrier repair in Spain, we are optimistic about the opportunity to work with WA industry to establish a similar capability here,” King said.

Navantia’s Ferrol shipyard is a major player in the European LNG carrier repair industry, one of six shipyards which account for over 94 percent of global LNG carrier repairs, the company’s statement reads.

King noted that a number of West Australian companies that have been identified as potential suppliers for the Future Frigate program also have capabilities which provide natural synergies for LNG carrier repair and other opportunities.
