NORSTA MARITIME: Regional Maintenance Provider - North
Project at a glance
Norsta Maritime Pty Ltd (NORSTA) is a 100% Australian-owned company currently operating in North Eastern Australia - and is now tendering for the Regional Maintenance Provider - North (RMP-N) contract.
Team NORSTA includes Australian businesses committed to developing regional Sovereign capability.
NORSTA is the first Regional Maintenance Provider under the Future Maritime Sustainment Model (FMSM) and is consequently contracted by the Commonwealth to coordinate, schedule and manage regional maintenance services for the Royal Australian Navy in North Eastern Australia.
NORSTA intends to expand its capabilities to encompass a Northern Australian delivery model and is therefore working towards expanding its established maintenance model to support current and future Defence vessels in Darwin.
NORSTA will do this by:
- working collaboratively with local industry, through structured capability development pathways;
- ensuring Northern Australian businesses are effectively empowered, enabled, and rewarded to deliver resilient and agile services; and
- working strategically with industry to provide a more stable environment with longer contract cycles, giving local SME’s greater certainty and predictability.
NORSTA will also work with Charles Darwin University, the Commonwealth and Northern Territory training support organisations to support the Northern Territory maritime supply chain in attracting and developing additional skilled workers allowing the maritime industry to grow in Darwin.
NORSTA would like to extend this opportunity to local Australian businesses in the Northern Territory and we invite expressions of interest from regional suppliers.
NORSTA is purely established for the purposes of delivering the RMP program and we will work in partnership with the Commonwealth and our local partners and other members of the Technical Support Network (TSN) to transform the regional supply chain.
NORSTA will ensure the Industrial capability in the Northern Territory is developed to deliver seaworthy ships for the Royal Australian Navy, now and into the future, to fight and win at sea.
