Project Description

AFP – Boat Selection and Specification

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) contracted SOFRACO to provide professional Naval Architecture services for the replacement of their ageing fleet. In this project, SOFRACO produced an Engineering Assessment Report with vessel options for the AFP’s business case proposal. SOFRACO also developed tender specifications and participated in the tender evaluation process.

SOFRACO provided details on vessels used by other Law Enforcement Agencies with 3 options for each vessel size and a recommendation. Each recommendation including the estimated build cost and time. NSCV requirements, and applicable AMSA Marine Orders were extensively referenced to ensure the specifications were complete and correct.
