BAE Systems has awarded a further 15 manufacturing contracts worth more than £40 million to suppliers for the Type 26 programme, the company announced on 2 November.

The contract awards include diesel and gearbox filtration, vibration monitoring equipment, and pipework and fittings.

The Type 26 programme entered the manufacturing phase in July. In total 44 companies are working directly with BAE Systems to deliver the vessels.

Nadia Savage, programme director for Type 26 Global Combat Ship, BAE Systems, said: ‘With manufacturing underway for Glasgow, the first of the three City Class Type 26 frigates, we are working at pace with our suppliers to deliver these hugely capable ships to the Royal Navy.

‘Today’s announcement demonstrates once again that the construction of these ships is now very much underway.’
