Babcock International, the Aerospace and Defence Company, has secured a seven-year, £50m contract with the Ministry of Defence for the repair and maintenance of Sea Water Systems on HM Ships and Submarines.

The arrangement leads on from Babcock’s previous programmes, and will operate from Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth.

“It will see Babcock continue in its role providing repairs, technical support and maintenance to pump equipment on board the Royal Navy Fleet. Under the asset availability service, Babcock’s scope will increase to support the Chloropac and Bio-foul systems.”

Richard Drake, Managing Director of Babcock’s Defence Systems Technology business, said:

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with our customer on this programme; this award builds on our already strong relationship. We will provide first-class technical support and engineering services to pump equipment for the Royal Navy, helping ensure maximum availability of their assets.”

Babcock has been working with suppliers to explore new solutions in manufacturing and supplying pump components with the aim to “further extend pump reliability and drive even greater efficiency for our customer”.

Still seems wrong thinking to do the boats in GUZ. The big ones struggle for starters and they’re all gonna be in Fassers soon anyway, even the school etc is moving (maybe moved now ???).
