Austal, Incat Spirit proposals welcomed

Release Date: 24/08/2020
The Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has welcomed the proposals put forward by Austal and Incat to build the new Spirits of Tasmania.
“While it is early days, the interest shown by both Austal and Incat appears to vindicate the Government’s decision to again test the market before deciding where to build the new TT Line ferries”, CEO Michael Bailey said.
“In this post-COVID world we need to be exploring every available opportunity to manufacture locally, and to create local manufacturing jobs.
“If we can possibly build the new ferries in Tasmania and in Australia, then we should do so.
“Tasmanian business are looking for a new ferry solution which delivers certainty and reliability, and which maximises Tasmanian jobs.”
