Navantia has launched on November, 23 the first AOR (auxiliary oiler replenishment) ”Nuship Supply” of a series of two, for the Royal Australian Navy, according to contract signed in May 2016.

The president of Navantia was grateful to the Australian Navy for the confidence deposited in the Company that once again has demonstrated the aptitude to design and build the products and services for the most competitive markets, in time and quality. She added that launching a new ship, means that Navantia shows, once again, an enormous potential and with the upcoming Strategic Plan and the F110 frigates, will guarantee supporting these capacities in the future.

The two ships are based on the Spanish Navy ship “Cantabria” which will be tailored to fulfil specific Australian standards and requirements. The agreement with the Commonwealth of Australia also includes the sustainment of the two AOR ships for a period of five years.

This contract means a workforce of 3 million hours for this area, as well as 35,000 hours for the Cartagena shipyard derived from the engines, and 35,000 for Navantia Sistemas derived from the IPMS. That makes a total of 1,800 jobs until 2020.

Besides, this contract includes a significant amount of participation from Australian industry, with companies such as Raytheon as supplier of the Communication System, Saab Australia as supplier of the Combat System, Scientific Management Associates (SMA) as suppliers of engineering services and Baker and Provan as supplier of cranes. In relation to Support, all the sustainment activities will be performed in Australia (NSW and WA) with Navantia Australia and its subcontractors, which has been partnering with Australian companies since 2007.

Malaysian Scorpene Submarines Go to Sabah's East Coast after Ten Years in the State

A decade after becoming part of the nation's defences, the Scorpene submarines of the Royal Malaysian Navy have made its first appearance in the waters off Sabah's east coast

KD Tunku Abdul Rahman was seen for the time in eastern Sabah waters carrying out an operation in waters off Sandakan on Monday (Nov 26).

The submarine, linked to a fresh corruption probe and murdered Mongolian model and translator Altantuya Shaariibuu, has never been deployed on the east coast even though it had been based in Sabah's waters over a decade ago.

It was reported previously that the waters were too shallow in the east coast of the state for the submarine.

KD Tunku Abdul Rahman sailed from its submarine base at Sepanggar to the Sandakan Region Two Naval base for a joint operation with other naval assets in the east coast.

“It was involved in a series of operations with KD Sri Johor to test their capabilities along the eastern Sabah sea border," said the Navy in a statement.The operations also saw the Navy’s Fennec helicopters being tested. This was for the transfer of personnel from helicopter to submarine and vice versa.

In its statement, the Navy said that the training would allow various naval assets in the east coast of Sabah to work with each other and with submarines.

The Navy added that this will also help the Navy test its procedures on the sea, underwater and work with aerial support.

"It will also test the preparedness of crews in the event of any threats,” the Navy said.

The navy said that the operations reflected the commitment of the Navy to secure the borders of Sabah's east coast against any threats by ensuring security in the maritime operational area in the the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone).

The presence of KD Tunku Abdul Rahman is also a message to the communities that the Navy was present and ready to deploy its assets to act against any threat.

KD Tunku Abdul Rahman is one of the two Scorpene submarines bought by the previous Barisan Nasional government that is currently under a fresh probe by corruption investigators.

It had also been linked to the case of murdered Mongolian model and translator Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Pakistan Army to manage Karachi Water and Sewerage Board

A debate on the water crisis in city dominated the proceedings of Sindh Assembly on Monday, with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Khurram Sher Zaman demanding to hand over the management of Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) to the army or Sindh Rangers.

Zaman criticised the provincial government’s performance and said that there was no single area in Karachi where KWSB provided water on regular basis. “For the last six years, I am pleading at this floor to provide potable water, but all in vain,” he said adding, “We want to know where the public money goes. The water issue can’t be resolved until corruption is eradicated from it.” Zaman remarked that the minister responsible for inequitable distribution of water in the city should step down if can’t perform the job diligently.
