Babcock expands Portsmouth footprint
Babcock has opened a new office in Portsmouth to support work on the UK Ministry of Defence’s five year Marine Systems Support Partner (MSSP) contract, the company announced on 22 January.
The MSSP contract covers engineering and inventory management services for the Royal Navy and delivers a wide range of support for the UK’s new HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier and fleet of Type 45 destroyers.
Alex Brown, support director, defence systems technology business, Babcock, said: ‘MSSP is a proven, successful partnership. By bringing together the best of industry in this new approach to supporting the Royal Navy, and putting the Royal Navy maintainers at the heart of the solution, we are already delivering effective results and I am confident about the future.’
