BMT Adelaide Office Officially Opened
BMT, the world’s leading maritime design and engineering consulting firm, launched its Adelaide office today
Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, officially opened the office along with BMT executives and numerous representatives from the defence sector.
“BMT is very excited to set up shop in Adelaide, which of course is one of centres of Australia’s defence industry,” BMT Managing Director, Peter Behrendt said.
“Our South Australian office will employ 15 people by mid-year, which is a demonstration of our confidence in the sector and the quality of the local workforce,” Mr Behrendt said.
“When it comes to design, engineering and risk management consulting in the maritime industry, BMT is the best in the world,” he said
“It is only natural that we develop a strong presence in Adelaide as we look to assist Australia in the development of its naval shipbuilding enterprise.
“BMT is in this for the long term and we congratulate the Australian government for its multi-decade commitment to the defence industry,” Mr Behrendt said.
BMT has already worked on and provided technical advice on several significant naval projects in Australia including the Future Submarine and Offshore Patrol Vessel programs, Collins Class submarine sustainment and the Ships and Submarines Divisions Workforce Review.
