Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price has announced that Icon SI (Aust) Pty Ltd has signed an $7.3 million contract with the Morrison Government for the managing contractor role for the development phase of the DSTG redevelopment project in Port Melbourne. 

The redevelopment of DSTG's research facility at Fishermans Bend will ensure the site’s infrastructure and facilities remain operational and fit-for-purpose, allowing Defence scientists to focus on meeting challenges confronting Defence both now and in the future.

“The works at Fishermans Bend will not only benefit Defence but also support the Victorian economy by generating exciting opportunities for small, local businesses,” Minister Price said.

Minister for the Digital Economy and Senator for Victoria Jane Hume toured the site and was briefed on the redevelopment plans.

“This is an exciting announcement, which will create jobs and bolster Australia’s Defence and national security."

"It will also support employment opportunities for future science and technology graduates from Victoria's world leading universities," she said.
