UK MoD multi-million pound submarine engineering support contract awarded


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
UK MoD
: 11 April, 2009  (New Product)
The UK MoD has placed a new contract for in-service support to the entire Royal Navy submarine flotilla worth £155M.
The contract secures submarine engineering support services based in Bristol, which include deciding what engineering work the submarines require when they undergo their scheduled maintenance, for the next 10 years.

The MoD and industry will work together as a joint team with shared goals under the new contract. The industry team includes Babcock, BMT Defence Services and Systems Evaluation and Assessment (SEA), and will co-locate a section of their team, currently based in Keynsham, alongside their DE&S colleagues in Abbey Wood, Bristol,.

The Head of In-Service Submarines at DE&S Alasdair Stirling said:

'These engineering services are absolutely crucial to maintaining safety and upgrading our submarine flotilla effectively, on time and at value for money.

'Over 11 successful years we have already built a strong working relationship with the industry team, and this new contract will further develop our collaboration. Instead of the traditional customer - supplier relationship, the joint team will take a pro-active approach to improving submarine support which makes way for innovation and cost reductions.'

The new agreement will also expand the pool of expertise in this specialist area to ensure the sustainability of future submarine support.
