Sustainment & Global Support

Austal USA has operations service centers in San Diego and Singapore that are designed to support Austal's sustainment and global support business.

Austal USA has established a repair facility in the Port of San Diego. The facility sits on a waterfront site in National City adjacent to Naval Base San Diego.  Austal USA’s 15-acre site will focus on ship repair for U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, and U.S. Coast Guard ships. The facility will feature full service ship repair capability providing maintenance and modernization for small surface combatants, unmanned and autonomous vessels, and other ships. The site will include a dry dock with 9,000 light ton lifting capacity optimized to execute availabilities on Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) and other small surface combatants. It will be 531 feet (162 meters) long, 154 feet (47 meters) wide, with a maximum draft of 36 feet (11 meters). 

Services at the repair facility will include technical and material support, topside work, and drydocking availabilities.  The new facility will enable more availabilities to be completed in their home port of San Diego reducing the strain on the fleet and Sailors.
