The Ship Lift Facility is designed to meet the needs of the general maritime sector and the needs of Defence and the Australian Border Force.
The project will be delivered through a wholly owned subsidiary of the Paspaley Group, Northern Ship Support Pty Ltd.
It is estimated around 100 workers will be employed throughout the facility’s construction phase.
The proposed ship lift will include:
a ship lift, capable of lifting vessels out of the water for dry docking and maintenance works
a hardstand area available for ship repair and maintenance works.
The ship lift will have the capacity to lift vessels such as the new fleet of offshore patrol vessels procured by the Australian Defence Force.
