‘It’s rewarding’: Engineer Anna Porras on working at Australian submarine builder


Federal government-owned shipbuilder, ASC, has welcomed an influx of more than 220 Adelaide workers dumped by the cancellation of a French submarine contract in 2021, The Advertiser reports.

One of these new employees is electrical engineer, Anna Porras, who got a job with ASC in January after working for two years on the Attack-class program with Naval Group.

“The scope of work that we have at ASC is massive,” Porras told The Advertiser.

ASC is a Federal Government-owned shipbuilder.

Porras, along with the other new ASC employees, are reported to be working on building a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines under the AUKUS security pact with the US and UK.
