Baker & Provan has been a defence supplier since the late 1980’s when it manufactured Slewing Arm Davits for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Since then Baker & Provan has designed and manufactured many of the cranes and winches fitted to RAN vessels to the point where we have the largest representation of any manufacturer of this class of equipment of products in service with the RAN:

- Mk II Boat Cranes for ANZAC Class Ships

- Low Magnetic Signature Deck Cranes for Huon Class Minehunters

- Slewing Arm Davits (SLADs) as currently fitted to the Adelaide Class FFGs

- Yo-Yo Davits for the LPA vessels and HMAS Sirius

- Stern Door Winches for the LPA Vessels.

Baker & Provan’s dedicated service division provides national and international service and support of Baker & Provan equipment from our bases in Sydney and Perth.

Our expertise enables us to undertake service, repair and overhaul a range of other marine equipment including Fin Stabilisers, Thrustors, Propulsion Systems, Capstans, and Anchor Windlasses, Goods Lifts, Winches, Cranes, Davits and similar equipment.

Our NATA accreditation for load testing and inspection of lifting and lifted equipment meets the Royal Australian Navy requirements under “ABR 5195 - RAN lifting and securing equipment, testing & surveying requirements”, as well as other Australian Standards and DNV requirements.

This accreditation provides an additional level of assurance in our competence and the reliability of our survey, inspection, load testing and certification of cranes, davits and winches.  Furthermore, this provides Baker & Provan with the unique capability to effectively respond to equipment problems that are uncovered during survey and load testing. Ultimately, this leads to higher integrity of service and repairs, shorter turnaround times and reduced total cost.

The photos in the video represent some of our service work . In addition to naval work we have also been involved in various containerisation projects destined for the Australian Army.  Our reputation is based on being a reliable Recognised Defence Supplier over an extended period of time.
