Austal’s US shipyard occupies 134 acres in Mobile, AL. Austal’s 700,000sf module manufacturing facility includes an 80,000sf warehouse. The Final Assembly Yard has 4 assembly bays with overhead cranes capable of lifting 40-ton modules; the 3 larger bays include mezzanine levels for shop space, material storage, and small assembly fabrication. There is a 1,000ft bulkhead separated from the bays by a concrete launch apron. The U.S. Navy contracted Austal to compete in the LCS program with the 127-meter trimaran seaframe Independence-variant platform. This provides superior seakeeping and aviation and a huge internal mission deck with a large payload carrying capacity. Austal is also designing and building the U.S. DOD’s 103-meter Joint High Speed Vessel which is capable of transporting troops and their equipment at 35 knots, supporting humanitarian relief efforts, and operating in shallow waters.

The transportation market is forever seeking greater efficiencies and shorter delivery times.  In May 2001 the largest of Austal's flagship Auto Express car ferries built to date, the 101 metre "EuroFerrys Pacifica" had the distinction of being the largest high speed catamaran in the world with diesel propulsion.  Whilst previous Auto Express ferries accommodated a 12 tonne axle load suitable for loading buses, the Auto Express 101 delivered a 15 tonne axle load. Lane widths of 3.5 metres and the use of stern and bow doors allowed full utilization of the vessel's 341 freight lane metres. With a sizeable 750 tonne deadweight and the ability to carry semi-trailers, the capacity and flexibility of the vessel enabled the operator to replace a smaller fast ferry and one conventional ferry thereby reducing operating costs whilst providing an improved service.  Since then Austal has further developed its Auto Express range, through "WestPac Express" for the United States Marine Corp to the impressive 127 metre long trimaran "Benchijigua Express" for Fred. Olsen S.A which boasts over 400 truck lane metres.  Multihull platforms have been developed by Austal for high speed transport of containers, trucks, trailers, pallets & aircraft ULDs, with/without passengers, refrigerated if required.  These Fast Freighters can provide alternatives to air and road haulage, provide new high frequency operations or offer feed direct from city to airport. Shallow draft and high manoeuvrability also mean little or no need for major port developments.  The Fast Freighters proposed by Austal offer viable and exciting solutions and our vehicle/passenger catamarans are already carrying a mix of freight vehicles.

Hull 616


Austal's Hull 616 is the second of a two-boat contract for Hawaii Superferry. Each 107-meter (353-foot) vehicle-passenger catamaran can carry up to 866 passengers and 282 vehicles and provide services connecting Honolulu to Maui and Kauai in three hours and from Honolulu to the Big Island in four hours.

With a draft of 3.6 meters (11’8”) and a beam of 24 meters (78’), the ferry will commute between the Hawaiian Islands at speeds up to 40 knots. The vessel is four decks high, including two decks for the car and truck loading, one deck for passengers and the bridge deck reserved for the pilot and his crew. The 2nd deck or mezzanine deck is 2/3 hoistable in order to facilitate parking for lighter cars and leave maximum parking space for the larger trucks.

The Upper Deck or passenger deck includes many premiere amenities for 866 passengers of all ages besides comfortable seating. This deck includes a bar and lounge on each end, food counter, gift shop, video game room, children’s play area, restrooms, crew mess, purser’s office, and first aid room.

Each of the ferries are powered by four MTU 8000 Series engines; the largest yet to be installed on any of Austal’s ferries in the U.S.  Each 49-ton engine has 20 cylinders, and produces 8,200 kw at 1150 RPM.

Description:
Austal is under contract to build 10 127-meter trimaran seaframe Independence-variant LCS class vessels.

Littoral Combat Ship (LCS)


In 2011 the U.S. Navy awarded Austal a construction contract for 10 Independence-variant LCS class vessels. The Independence (LCS 2) was commissioned in January 2010 and is currently undergoing trials by her crew.   The basis of Austal’s seaframe design is the 127-meter (417ft) trimaran hull “Benchijigua Express”, a passenger-vehicle ferry for a leading Spanish ferry operator. The benefits of this hull in commercial service include better seakeeping, passenger comfort and efficiency. For naval operators these features combined with a beam of 31.6 meters (104 feet) provide a ship with superior speed (in excess of 40 kts), flexibility, shallow draft, payload and significant aviation capabilities over conventional designs. Of note, the ship carries two helicopters which can be operated in adverse sea conditions because of the extremely stable trimaran hull.
