Rheinmetall Defence Australia is establishing its Australia-New Zealand Headquarters and Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) in Ipswich, Queensland. Rheinmetall’s MILVEHCOE will be a regional hub with an expected program of continuous design, build and support for up to 5000 military vehicles in Australia and the Asia Pacific.
The construction of the MILVEHCOE including a main production facility, administration building, corporate function centre, vehicle compliance test track and indoor weapons test firing range are programmed to be completed mid-2020.
The Queensland Government through the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning will oversee the construction project.
The construction of the project will be delivered through a Managing Contractor Design and Construction management contract.
The Managing Contractor will progressively release trade packages on ICN utilising an Expression of Interest (EOI) process.
Expressions of Interest received will be forwarded to the Managing Contractor for their consideration. The overall responsibility for the award of all trade packages rests solely with the appointed Managing Contractor.
The Managing Contractor will be appointed in the next few weeks.
