Bisalloy Steels and CSIRO in Collaborative Innovation Partnership

Bisalloy Steels has entered a collaborative partnership with Australia’s leading scientific research organisation, CSIRO.

Through the Innovation Connections programme Bisalloy will be collaborating with CSIRO on a range of fronts, including R&D strategy, advice and guidance with respect to government support programmes and other key areas such as intellectual property, business improvement and product commercialisation.

“Our company vision is enabling innovation with steel which reflects our passion for leading the development of new products, processes and ideas related to our high-performance steel products,” said Justin Suwart, Business Development Manager at Bisalloy.

“CSIRO are the perfect partner for us as we endeavour to push the boundaries and possibilities of not only our own processes and research but also the range of applications into which quenched and tempered steel products can be used.”

The partnership agreement between the two organisations follows the recent announcement that Bisalloy’s high-strength steel plate will be used in the Australian Government’s $5.2bn LAND 400 Phase 2 Armoured Vehicle programme.

“We have a long track record of supplying Australian Defence projects with our Armour and protection grade plate steel products,” said Justin.

“BISALLOY® steel was successfully used in the Collins Class submarine and Bushmaster armoured vehicle projects, however, as technology and performance expectations evolve we need to ensure our processes and products keep pace with the exacting requirements of future defence projects.”

To date, Bisalloy and CSIRO have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Non -Disclosure Agreement and have commenced work on what is expected to be the first of a number of development projects.

“We’re excited at the benefits and opportunities this collaboration will deliver and look forward to the expert assistance and guidance we’ll have access to at CSIRO,” concluded Justin.
