12 April 2019
The Department of Defence has released a Request for Tender (RFT) for engineering support vehicles including earth-moving and material handling equipment.
Due to operational requirements, Defence has identified a need to replace a range of engineering platforms including bulldozers, concrete batching plant, cranes, excavators, front-end loaders, graders, rock crushers, rollers, skid-steer loaders and telescopic handlers.
Defence will use the equipment in Australia and overseas for multiple engineering activities, including: earthworks, route development and maintenance, airfield construction and repair, port operations, supply and distribution, and beach operations.
Under Project LAND 8120 Phase 1 – Defence is seeking a company to deliver a suite of modified commercial off the shelf solutions maximising Australian industry involvement.
An industry briefing is planned for 30 April 2019 in Melbourne and registration details will be provided via Austender.
The RFT closes on 30 July 2019.
