Latest seven-year contract extension is worth approximately £50 million.

Babcock International will carry on providing repairs, technical support and maintenance to pump equipment installed on UK RN surface vessels and submarines, under a contract renewal from the MoD.

The new seven-year deal is worth about £50 million ($68.9 million), Babcock announced on 25 March.

The company added: ‘The arrangement leads on from Babcock’s previous programmes, and will operate from Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth.’ However, the scope of the asset availability work will widen to include support for Chloropac and Bio-foul systems.

Babcock added that it has been working with suppliers ‘to explore innovative new solutions in manufacturing and supplying pump components with the aim to further extend pump reliability and drive even greater efficiency for our customer’.
