WA Secures $20 Million Torpedo Support Contract


The maintenance of the Royal Australian Navy’s advanced lightweight anti-submarine torpedo will continue in WA with a $20 million contract awarded to Thales Australia, to sustain the MU90 Light Weight Torpedo.

“Thales Australia is among many local defence businesses providing robust, secure domestic supply chains and high-tech jobs for working Australians” said the Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price.

“Thales is to be congratulated for again demonstrating the necessary skills and ability to provide this vital technical support.The Commonwealth assessed high quality, value-for-money sustainment options and found the best solution right here on home soil.”

The Royal Australian Navy has used the MU90 Light Weight Torpedo since 2013, and Thales has held the support contract since that time.
