Western Australia's economy over the
next 25 years through naval contracts and
$100 million per annum in work for
"The $60 million floating dock is a
world first; no other dock has the
technology to move in more than one
direction at a time and very few docks
have the capability to transfer and offload
vessels," Mr Grylls said.
Busy and versatile Strategic Marine has
stated that it supports the strong Western
Australian Government investment in
infrastructure and believes that
government initiatives such as boosting the
AMC capacity will lead the way to
increased business confidence and the
development of Western Australia.
"The floating dock project is a key
component of the Government's $174.3
million commitment to infrastructure
upgrades at the AMC, and will be a valuable
addition to Western Australia's ship
building precinct," Strategic announced.
According to Strategic, in terms of large
projects, Western Australian businesses are
too often overlooked for short-term gain
through cheaper prices from overseas
companies. To compete with this,
Strategic Marine has developed its own

Mark Newbold, Chairman of Strategic
Marine spoke of the project with pride.
"Winning the tender to build the floating
dry dock was an honour for Strategic
Marine as there are few marine tenders of
this magnitude in the local marine
industry. The fact that it was a LandCorp
tender made it all the more unique."
He continued to say that: "The Floating
Dry Dock has provided Strategic Marine a
platform to showcase our global
manufacturing capacity, not only in
Shipbuilding but also in highly technical
construction projects, also our ability to
structure projects offshore without
compromising local content."
"I believe that we often overlook the
importance that these projects have for
local industry. By providing local
enterprises with the opportunity to work
on highly technical construction contracts
such as this, we ensure that we invest in
our most important asset, our people."
Strategic Marine has also recently signed
an additional contract to deliver a 43.8-metre
Landing Craft for West Australian company
Bhagwan, and is currently constructing Tug
Pen Pontoons with Doric for Woodside.
