BMT Defence Services Ltd , a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has announced that it has been confirmed as design contractor for the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation ’s (NDLO) logistics and support vessel (LSV), supported by sister companies BMT Reliability Consultants Ltd and BMT Isis Ltd.

The auxiliary vessel, designed to cover a multitude of roles and to be built by DSME in their Okpo yard, will measure 180 metres in length, 26 metres in beam, and have a displacement of over 26,000tonnes. This new addition to the fleet is due to be delivered to the Royal Norwegian Navy during October 2016.

The LSV contract is worth an estimated GBP140 million, with a proportion going to the three BMT Group defence subsidiaries who will work together with DSME to deliver the vessel.

Between the three companies, BMT will provide the programme with, amongst other services, basic design, requirements analysis and acceptance planning, Integrated Logistics Support (ILS), the management, assessment and optimisation of the Supportability, Availability and Reliability as well as safety and environmental analysis and management.

David Bright, Defence Sector Director of BMT Group said: “We are delighted to have secured this prestigious contract in the face of strong international competition. BMT’s on-going partnership with DSME has yet again borne fruit and it will be a privilege to continue working with such a reputable, world-leading shipbuilder. Delivering the Norwegian LSV in partnership with DSME will undoubtedly challenge our staff to demonstrate the full extent of their design and engineering expertise.”
