Wildara is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by Australian Defence to provide client side project management services to manage the procurement and delivery of critical electrical infrastructure to HMPNGS Tarangau naval wharf in PNG.
The project delivers the supporting infrastructure needed to meet the rollout of the Pacific Patrol Boat Replacement Project (SEA 3036). SEA 3036 is part of the Commonwealth’s Pacific Maritime Security Program (PMSP) that aims to enhance practical maritime security cooperation across the South Pacific and involves the acquisition and support of up to 21 new vessels to replace the existing fleet of Pacific-class patrol boats. The project broadens and further strengthens the region’s capability to respond to issues such fisheries protection, trans-national crime, and search and rescue.
Announcing the recent engagement, Managing Director Peter Bowden said the selection is a testament to Wildara’s commitment to PNG and ability to continually deliver projects successfully in some of the world’s toughest environments. The project will provide Defence with Australian Standard infrastructure, enhanced reliability and expanded capacity to accommodate up to six patrol boats.
