Description

A national project to provide facilities – primarily vehicle workshops and logistics facilities – to support, maintain, and sustain the new B vehicle fleet for the ADF.

LAND 121 is a multi-phased project providing the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with current-generation, high-capability field vehicles, modules and trailers. Approximately 7500 protected (armoured) and unprotected vehicles providing battlefield mobility, logistics support and tactical training will be procured.

The works proposed to be delivered by LAND 121 Unit Sustainment Facilities Project (LAND 121 Facilities) provide new and upgraded facilities to support the introduction, operation and deployment of the ADF’s new vehicle fleet. The facilities generally include new and refurbished maintenance facilities, storage and parking areas, and facilities to meet various legislative requirements for the operation of vehicles.

The overall construction schedule is proposed to commence in the 2nd quarter of 2016 and conclude in the 3rd quarter of 2019.

The aim of the LAND 121 Stage 2 Unit Sustainment Facilities project is to deliver new or upgraded facilities to the highest priority. Defence units that will improve the maintenance, support and ongoing operation of the new vehicles. In general terms, the vehicles provided under LAND 121 will be larger and heavier than the vehicles they are replacing, and in many instances the existing unit facilities will not be able to maintain, support or sustain the new vehicles.
