Update: Environmental Assessment Finished at HMAS Bundaberg Fire Site

As previously reported the Armidale Class Patrol Boat HMAS Bundaberg suffered significant damage due to a fire which occurred on Monday, 11 August 2014 in Brisbane.

 

The boat was undergoing routine maintenance at the Aluminium Boats Australia commercial facility when the fire started.

Since then an environmental assessment of the site has been completed, allowing officials access to conduct a structural safety assessment.

Once the safety assessment is completed, a full assessment of the extent of damage can then be undertaken.

It is premature at this stage to speculate on the cause of the fire or the future employment of the vessel.

Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
