The Royal Australian Navy can now enjoy the great comfort of our AVT13 vacuum toilets. Over 170 of our AVT13 units have recently been installed on the Bay-Class ship, the HMAS Choules. The vacuum toilets are feeding 2 brand new STC-15 type sewage treatment plants that were built in as part of the same refit by Atlantic & Peninsula Australia.
In order to make the complete vacuum system work properly Wärtsilä Water & Waste has also been asked to deliver great numbers of Vacuum Valve Interfaces, sensing kits, and many types of other vacuum related valves, joints and gaskets. From a service point of view our team in Poole has been able to fully support A&P Australia and Wärtsilä Australia with our service and commissioning capacities.

UK based A&P Group supports RFA Cardigan Bay, RFA Lyme’s Bay and RFA Mounts Bay as part of its Through Life Support (TLS) contract with the MoD.
HMAS Choules, formerly RFA Largs Bay, was purchased by the Royal Australian Navy in 2011. A&P Australia was incorporated in 2012 and has been supporting HMAS Choules since her arrival in Australia. In 2015, A&P Australia was awarded the In-Service Sustainment and Support Contract for HMAS Choules which was extended in 2019.
