Serco Asia Pacific (ASPAC)

Serco Asia Pacific (ASPAC) has been operating for more than 30 years across Australia with a proven track record in delivering the most demanding, complex and sensitive solutions for government clients.

Employing around 10,000 people in the ASPAC region, Serco applies world’s best practice, insights and technology across six key sectors: Citizen Services, Defence, Healthcare, Immigration, Justice and Transport.

Serco is playing a vital role in the future of Australia’s Antarctic Program through the contract for the design, build, operation and maintenance of Australia’s new icebreaker, the Nuyina, on behalf of the Australian Government.

The RSV Nuyina will be a state-of-the-art ship offering scientists unprecedented and extended access to the Southern Ocean and Antarctica.

Replacing the Aurora Australis, the 160-metre long, 24,000-tonne vessel will be larger, stronger and offer increased endurance and operational flexibility.

Serco Australia will operate and maintain the vessel from its home port of Hobart from 2020, playing a significant and long-term part in Australia’s Antarctic endeavours.
