HMAS Adelaide Departs From Dry Dock (0.59 mins)

Landing Helicopter Dock HMAS Adelaide moved into the dry dock at Navy’s Fleet Base East in May 2017. Following the docking, Defence undertook a range of activities including access to, and a detailed inspection of the propulsion pods, defect rectification and maintenance. HMAS Adelaide was undocked in late June 2017 and is set to undergo sea trials, it is expected she will return to her operational capability program over the months to follow. Defence has worked closely with the original equipment manufacturers – BAE, Navantia and Siemens – to identify the causes of the issues.
