Through-life engineering support contract for the Royal Navy’s ocean survey vessel 'HMS Scott' awarded to Babcock, initially for 5 years.

Under the contract, which includes an option to extend in 2018 for a further five years, Babcock will provide all aspects of through-life support for the vessel, working collaboratively in long term relationships with the MoD and some of its selected specialist contractors.

The contract scope includes all aspects of Fleet Time Engineering Support for HMS Scott, including rectification of operational defects, planning and delivery of Fleet Time Support Periods, equipment spares management, design services, management of all maintenance requirements using the Unit Maintenance Management System database, provision of an electronic shared working environment for the exchange of technical information and spares supply and logistics information, and undertaking all work required to keep the vessel operational. Planning and execution of a deep refit maintenance package will also be undertaken in 2013 under the contract.

A dedicated Devonport-based ‘Scott Support Team’ will work with the MoD’s Defence Equipment & Support and the Royal Navy to manage the delivery of the through life support contract. The team has access to considerable reach-back within Babcock including synergies with the ongoing Surface Ship Support Alliance, which is successfully supporting the majority of RN complex warships.

Babcock will work with existing MoD Market Facing Category (MFC) contractors (selected companies supplying and certifying specific products or services) for certain products or services such as classification society certification and furnishings. Babcock has already started establishing the necessary relationships with all the MFC companies and they say they look forward to working closely with them over the coming years in the support of HMS Scott.
