Known as ASC West, it was officially opened on 30 April 2008 by former Western Australian Minister for Energy, Resources, Industry and Enterprise Francis Logan, and former Federal Parliamentary Secretary for Defence Procurement Greg Combet.
It features accommodation for 350 ASC employees and dedicated facilities for boat crews and Royal Australian Navy personnel, and represents the amalgamation of our three previous service facilities into one consolidated state-of-the-art submarine support and repair facility.
Our facility at the Australian Marine Complex is located at Henderson, 35km south-west of Perth's CBD.
ASC West is a significant investment in our future in the State of Western Australia.
ASC West key features
- Modern office accommodation (3,600 metres) and dedicated facilities for boat crews and RAN personnel;
- A large maintenance hall (2,600 square metres) for undercover submarine work; and
- Use of the Western Australian Government-funded floating dock, transfer facility and access to the CUF's eastern wharf extensions.
ASC West is currently undergoing an upgrade which will see the construction of a maintenance support tower and sky bridge to further improve the efficiency of submarine maintenance.
