Launching of ALHD Adelaide for the Royal Australian Navy


Launching of ALHD Adelaide for the Royal Australian Navy

Navantia launched at its Ferrol facilities, the second amphibious ship for the Royal Australian Navy. The Ship’s launching lady, Mrs. Maureen Banks, as well as the Chief of the Royal Australian Navy, Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, together with representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia, BAE Systems, SEPI and Navantia have attended the event.

Construction of the “Adelaide” started with the Steel Cutting ceremony on the 2nd of February 2010, followed by the keel laying on the 18th of February 2011.

The launch takes place four and half months earlier than the planned date.  This early launch provides additional time, until early 2014, to complete the outfitting and testing of the ship, when the hull will be transported to Australia for completion and delivery by BAE Systems Australia in Williamstown.

The “Adelaide” is the second of the two amphibious ships contracted on the 23rd of November 2007 by the Commonwealth of Australia in Melbourne. The amphibious ships will be delivered by BAE Systems to the Commonwealth of Australia in 2014 and 2015.

The design of the Australian LHDs is based on the “Juan Carlos I”, delivered by Navantia to the Spanish Navy last year.
