Ventia is currently seeking EOIs from interested local contractors for the bid for Navy’s Regional Maintenance Provider – North.

Regional Maintenance Centres are a key element of the Australian Government’s Continuous Naval Shipbuilding program. These Commonwealth led sustainment centres will plan, manage and deliver maintenance on Navy surface fleet capabilities. The Regional Maintenance Provider North will be based in Darwin and will collaborate with the Commonwealth to coordinate, program, schedule, manage and verify the execution of sustainment work for the asset classes to be supported in the NT.

Ventia is currently tendering with Defence for the role of coordinating, programming, scheduling, managing and verifying the execution of sustainment work in Darwin. RMC North is intended to be operational in Q2, 2023 to initially support six Arafura Class Offshore Patrol Vessels (the OPVs) and four evolved Cape Class Patrol Boats (eCCPBs).
