BMT welcomes build decision for CVF

BMT : 25 May, 2008  (New Product)

The UK Ministry of Defence has announced that it intends to proceed to the manufacturing stage to build two new CVF aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy
This represents a big step for Bath-based naval design and engineering company BMT Defence Services Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, which produced the original, winning innovative platform design. More than 50 BMT designers are presently engaged in directing and performing ongoing detailed ship design work within the Aircraft Carrier Alliance project team.

“BMT is proud to see the CVF project pass through this pivotal stage of its development. The success of our initial platform design highlights our unique combination of skills and capabilities, which encompass the maritime sector sovereign capabilities required to design and support complex warships, auxiliaries and submarines, from concept to point of build. We have much to offer during this new phase in the areas of integration, assurance, test, acceptance and future support of this new naval platform, said Roger Cooper, Managing Director of BMT Defence Services Ltd.

With a ship design heritage stretching back over twenty years, BMT continues to innovate new warship, support vessel and submarine designs. As team design partner, BMT is contributing its Aegir double hull fleet support ship design to the BAE Systems team competing to build new Fleet Tankers for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.

Vidar-36 is the company’s new design for a large and capable ocean-going conventional submarine. The Vidar-36 design is the latest output of BMT InSpira, the company’s multi-disciplinary research and design development team, approach to the rapid research and development of new concepts and detailed warship designs.
