|Japan has enlisted electronics firm Toshiba Corp (6502.T) to help it try to win Asia's biggest defense contract Hugo Lloris France Jersey , a A$50 billion ($36 billion) deal to build a dozen submarines for Australia, three sources said.
Toshiba is considering building a factory in Australia to make lithium-ion batteries to power the vessels, said the sources who are familiar with the plan but not authorized to talk to the media.
The potential investment, which is contingent on Canberra picking the Japanese design, is part of an incentive package promising commercial and defense sector work beyond the submarine program, aimed at winning over politicians who want jobs in Australia.
The proposed plant Djibril Sidibe France Jersey , which could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, will also fabricate industrial scale power packs for commercial customers around the world, said the sources.
Such an investment could be an attractive proposition for Australia, which is seeking other avenues of growth as it grapples with plunging commodity prices.
"Australia's prime minister (Malcolm Turnbull) is promoting innovation, and that is something Japan can do," said one of the sources.
Australia's submarine industry is based in South Australia Corentin Tolisso France Jersey , but the sources did not say where Toshiba was considering building a factory.
Toshiba denied it was mulling a new Australian battery plant.
"There is no such a fact, no such a plan," a spokesman said.
A spokesman for Japan's Ministry of Defense said nothing was decided regarding which maker's batteries would be used if its bid was successful.
"If Japan is chosen, then Japan and Australia would consider detailed plans over several years and the first discussion would come from there," the spokesman said.
BOOST FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA, TOSHIBA
Without commenting on Toshiba's potential involvement Blaise Matuidi France Jersey , South Australia's Minister for Defense Industries Martin Hamilton-Smith said he expected new facilities associated with battery technology would be based in the state as part of any domestic-build option, regardless of who won the tender.
"This is an example of the impact the Future Submarines project would have across other industry sectors," he told Reuters in an emailed response. "It also underlines the economic effects of a local build and why such effects should be taken into account when the Federal government considers where the submarines will be built."
Australia's Department of Defense did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The choice of Toshiba to supply the Australian submarine batteries would be a boost for the struggling Japanese industrial conglomerate as it braces for a net loss of 710 billion yen ($6.3 billion) this year following a major accounting scandal.
It was not immediately clear if the plant would build lithium ion battery cells from scratch or be a cheaper, simpler assembly operation, offering fewer jobs and economic benefits.
Toshiba's batteries were picked for the Australian submarine project over those made by GS Yuasa Corp (6674.T) because they are easier to maintain, two of the sources said.
GS Yuasa declined to comment Benjamin Pavard France Jersey , while Japan's Defense Ministry did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Japan is offering Australia a variant of its 4,000 ton diesel-electric Soryu submarine built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (7011.T) and Kawasaki Heavy Industries (7012.T), with a lithium-ion underwater propulsion system.
It is up against France's state-owned builder DCNS, which plans to make a conventional version of its 5,000-tonne Barracuda nuclear-powered submarine, and Germany's ThyssenKrupp (TKAG.DE) (TKMS) Antoine Griezmann France Jersey , which is proposing to scale up its 2,000-ton Type 214 class vessel.
Domestic political considerations, particularly jobs for Australian workers, will also weigh on the final choice.
Japan was initially slow to commit to build all vessels at South Australian shipyards. But sources told Reuters in January the competition was narrowing to a race between Japan and France as TKMS loses ground over concerns about the technical challenges of scaling up the size of its sub.
To win over Australia, Japan's government is also pushing the strategic value of its design over one from Europe.
The two U.S. allies in Asia are deepening security ties as Washington pushes its defense partners to work more closely together to balance China's rising regional power.
Japan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Fumio Kishida stressed that strategic significance when he met his Australian counterpart Julie Bishop in Tokyo last month.
Defense officials in Tokyo, however Anthony Martial France Jersey , worry their bid is undermined by a dearth of experience managing overseas military projects and a lack of industrial ties in Australia it will need to complete the complex vessels, the sources said.
Until Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ended a decades-old ban on arms exports in 2014, Japanese military equipment makers had only ever sold kit to domestically.
Australia's government has said it will make its submarine pick this year.
Ask anyone in a committed long-term union for the secret of their success. Almost always, one of the top three reasons cited is the ability to laugh together. No matter how big the problems, or how many the obstacles, they will be most effectively approached with a sense of humor and the teamwork that emerges from shared laughter and a mutually positive outlook.
While some fun costs money: an amusement park Alphonse Areola France Jersey , a fine meal out, a trip to Vegas, or that hilarious new movie, there are many fun activities that don't cost a dime. Give your partner the gift or being a slave for a week, including the requisite master or mistress verbiage, pulling your forelock Alexandre Lacazzete France Jersey , bowing or curtseying, and backing out of the room. The results can be very funny, especially if carried into public or in front of the kids.
