Base Facilities

Devonport Naval Base is equipped with a range of facilities that provide the unique training, engineering and safety services that are needed by a military organisation.  These facilities include training simulators, a Dry Dock and the Sea Safety Training Squadron.


The RNZN uses virtual reality simulators to train personnel in key ship handling and engineering tasks.  The simulators use a combination of realistic physical interiors and flat-panel displays to create a challenging training environment. 

Dry Dock and Engineering

The historic Calliope Dry Dock is located on the Naval Base.  Operation of the Dry Dock and engineering services are provided by Babcock Engineering.

Sea Safety Training Squadron

The Navy operates a Sea Safety Training Squadron where all personnel are trained in firefighting, damage control and sea safety.
