Naval Group Australia has awarded an almost $1 million contract to leading Australian-based data centre operator YourDC Pty Ltd in a further boost to the local economy.
Within their flagship facility based in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, YourDC will construct and deliver to Naval Group Australia a secure, dedicated, data centre space that will house NGA’s sensitive computer systems.
Naval Group Australia CEO John Davis said that YourDC was selected as the preferred data centre provider following a competitive Request for Proposal process.
“Naval Group Australia is focussed on creating local jobs and benefitting local businesses as we deliver the Attack Class submarines,” said Mr Davis.
“As a local business, YourDC will play a critical role in supporting Naval Group Australia as our workforce rapidly increases and our facilities expand.
“This contract further demonstrates Naval Group’s commitment to maximising Australian industry capability across the Future Submarine Program.”
YourDC CEO Scott Hicks said that as a key supplier to Australian defence projects, YourDC was excited to be awarded this key contract.
“As an Australian owned and operated company, YourDC is excited to welcome Naval Group to the State’s largest digital ecosystem of cloud and IT providers,’’ said Mr Hicks.
“We are committed to delivering world class security, connectivity and premium performance and look forward to an ongoing partnership fostering growth and digital transformation for the defence industry.”
